I am obsessed with nitric oxide and the benefits that it affords to people especially people who compete in sports or go hard in the gym which applies to alot of my clients. Nitrates when consumed convert to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide helps with energy, mental sharpness and heart health. A limited capacity to produce nitric oxide is associated with heart disease and diabetes. Nitrates from vegetables are harmless and can add to positive health outcomes. This dish sources local arugula and is mixed with red onion and carmelized beets covered with a plant based feta.
