Roasted Beet Salad with Sautéed Beet Greens

Sometimes I go into dinner with a plan. Tonight was not one of those nights. At the end of a run I wandered into Whole Foods looking for a vegetable for inspiration and found the beets. They had large, intriguing looking leaves that, after a quick in-store Google search, I found out are edible and can be cooked like kale. Fun fact: beets are full of antioxidants that are good for your Red heart
