*Culinary Trivia from Jenny Zhang: Beet-Fried Rice is a vegan dish full of fiber. In addition, beets have many health benefits. They may help lower blood pressure, boost stamina (source of energy), fight inflammation, help support mental health, support detoxification and much more. Beets are rich in folates, manganese, potassium and copper, and contain anti-cancer properties. Beets are also high in fiber and loaded with antioxidants. According to Dr. Oz, one to two cups of beet juice a day have been shown to significantly lower blood pressure.
