BEETS

According to Hippocrates, the father of medicine, beets and their leaves are considered useful in healing and as an aphrodisiac. 

Beets contain compounds that help protect against heart disease, birth defects and colon cancer. They are high in fiber and have the highest sugar content of all vegetables, yet are very low in calories.

Beets are particularly rich in vitamin B, folate, which is especially important during pregnancy.
