This beetroot and spinach salad shows that flavor and nutritional value don't necessarily have to be mutually exclusive. While this recipe is perfect for people suffering from diabetes or need to put more fiber into their diet, it's a good option for anyone looking for a fresh and summery guilt-free salad.

Beetroot has a low glycemic index and helps keep blood sugar levels in check. Meanwhile, sesame seeds are rich in Omega-6 fatty acids, which help lower bad cholesterol and boost good cholesterol levels.

To put together this salad, start by boiling two to three cubed beetroots and roasting the sesame seeds until they're light brown. Then combine the spinach and beetroot and add a tablespoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of sugar. Then toss all the ingredients together and serve!
