#FoodPairing awesomeness: #BlackBeans are a great source of #fiber, #protein, and plant-based #iron (as other #beans, lentils, and dark leafy greens). When combined with #vitaminC rich-foods (lemon, lime, citrus, peppers, etc) you can absorb the veggie iron much better. That’s proper food pairing :) 
To Cook: Sauté beets in lemon juice, olive oil, and a little water until tender. Add a can of black beans and heat for a few minutes. Remember to drain and rinse the beans first.  
I don’t necessarily love #beets (they stain everything and are a pain in the butt to cook!) but I make it a point to eat them since they have anti-inflammatory and blood building benefits. My #oncology patients would always eat more beets to improve their #hemoglobin. It works!
