From November 2011:
I recently bought some medium-sized red beets from the farmer’s market and was ready to try preparing them. I admit I haven’t cooked beets often and I was feeling a bit intimidated, but I found a recipe that sounded worth trying. The recipe comes from a book called Recipes for Change, by Lisa DeAngelis and Molly Siple. The book is targeted to women going through menopause. I started experiencing hot flashes about eight months ago and am hoping to get through this “special” time in my life without the use of hormones…I am so thankful to have been recommended this book. Anyway, I wanted to share this recipe with you. It is yummy and filled with calcium and folic acid, along with manganese, iron, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper and vitamin B6. Did you know that seaweed is an excellent source of calcium?
