Beetroot is packed with nutrients and is one of the world’s so-called “superfoods”. It contains nitrates which help increase blood flow to the brain and muscles which helps with athletic performance. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and loads of fibre to help with digestion. Eggs provide protein and vitamins and go incredibly well with everything else on your plate. It’s full of colour, texture and goodness which will bring a smile to everybody at the table.
