This recipe is really quite easy to make, and if you have never made homemade tortillas before, I think you will really enjoy the delicious, fresh taste compared to the ones you’ve bought at the store.

You will also love the added nutritional benefits and the beautiful color from the beetroot powder. You can pick up this beetroot powder from your favorite grocery store, mine is Wegman’s.

Cassava flour, made from the yuca root, is a popular diet staple for those following a grain-free, gluten-free diet like the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) diet.

This flour is very mild in flavor and is not gritty or grainy, but rather powdery like traditional flour. I use it extensively in my cookbooks, including The 30-Minute Thyroid Cookbook.

What Can you Make with Beets?

I have used beets to both dye and accent a variety of beautiful dishes, like my:

You can enjoy beets in many different ways, from raw beets to roasted beets, canned beets to pickled beets.

I am fond of beet powder because it has a much more subtle taste to it, which makes it a perfect addition to anything you’re already cooking or baking with.

Nutrition Benefits of Beets

The more beets you eat, the more good you are doing for your body.

Beets are an excellent source of antioxidants and other anti-inflammatory compounds that can help to reduce inflammation in the body.

For those suffering from food sensitivities, beets can be a healthful addition to an overall anti-inflammatory diet. They can also help to support the best autoimmune diet for certain individuals.

Beets for Heart Health

Beets are rich in potassium, which is one of the main minerals responsible for muscle contraction, including the contraction of the heart. A diet rich in beets and other potassium-rich foods can help decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Beets for Blood Pressure

Beets contain two important nutrients that can help lower blood pressure: potassium and nitrate. Potassium works with sodium to maintain the volume of blood in circulation steady. More sodium in the body means more water, more blood volume, and higher blood pressure.

Consuming more potassium helps flush sodium out of our system, naturally lowering blood pressure.

Beets for Bone Health

Beets contain the mineral silica, which helps the body to utilize calcium, so it’s important for musculoskeletal health and reducing the risk of osteoporosis.

Beets for Increased Energy

In the 16th century, it was given as a “blood builder” to people who were pale and run down.

At the time, doctors and patients may not have known why it was so efficacious, but health experts now know that the high iron content in raw beets can be helpful for people who suffer from anemia and fatigue.

Beets for Sexual Health

Since Roman times, beets have been viewed as an aphrodisiac. It contains high amounts of boron, which is directly related to the production of human sex hormones.
