Cold beet soup: light recipe

23 Jul

The hottest summer´s month bring with them, besides the necessity of having fresh and lighter lunches and dinners, wishes of less permanency inside our kitchens. Because of this today I want to share a recipe that will let you spend just a few minutes of preparation and a lot of free time to enjoy it. It´s a recipe that I invented after reading a proposal from Azafrán y Pimentón, blog that I follow, where you´ll find delicious starters or main courses.

This cold soup takes less bread and oil for those who are following any diet, either weight loss or weight control, the beet is an excellent ally if you are under any of these plans. Besides satiates and contains lot of fiber that avoid constipation and favor intestinal transit, beets avoid liquid retentions as well. It´s figured out that people who frequently eat beet have less probabilities of developing some malign tumors, especially if beets are consumed raw. Also they have antioxidants proprieties that become bees natural producers of cells and red bloods, thanks to their high levels of iron and folic acid.

If we introduce beets into our diets, our health in general will improve, and ours skin, hair and nails will take more vitality and shine. This is because of the methionine, an amino-acid present in this food that favors the secretion of hormones like the dopamine, who has the function that we live in a better mood, and if we are in strict plans that we can take them to a happily ending.

To counteract possible damages to people who are week kidneys, I opted for a cook beets. I mix them with a beaten fresh cheese, enriched with calcium, that neutralize the oxalates, agents so prejudicial to kidney diseases or gout. It is advisable the moderate consume of beet to these pacients, but they can take it if is accompanied of products rich in calcium.

One last point: Hypertensive people also should have special care eating frequently beet. This edible root is very rich in sodium, if it´s true has high levels of potassium that use to neutralize the extra amounts of sodium. As I always say, taking one food or another won´t  hurt us, on the contrary, a varied and balanced diet will provide us with more nutrients to supply all the requirements of our organism, and we´ll be able to live more healthy.
