Beetroot Kola Urundai

Beetroot Kola Urundai Beetroot is one of the super vegetables which plays an important role in preventing anemia, since it helps to increase hemoglobin level.  The ideal and best way to include Beetroot in our diet which i follow is to grate and grind it well by adding little water. Drink this juice without filtering it and with little salt and pepper. Filtering juice will result in lack of fibers. No sugar to be added to any juice as it turns it unhealthy. But i bet, most of the kids won't drink this juice.
