We call this one liquid gold because it’s nutritionally balanced, low in sugar, and fantastic for keeping you energized during busy days! Golden beets are a bit sweeter and less “earthy” tasting than a typical red beet, and are full of iron, potassium, and fiber. In addition to healthy Omega-3s, pumpkin seeds provide a nice serving of zinc, which has been shown to help with everything from boosting your immune system to creating clearer skin.
