Hate Beets?

I am a reformed beet hater so I know what it’s like to be in the anti-beet camp.

But let’s face it: they’re highly nutritious and really good for us. They’re also very easy to grow.

They contain antioxidants and provide anti-inflammatory and detoxifying properties. They’re high in vitamin C, potassium, manganese, vitamin B and fiber.

Not yet convinced to devour the red root vegetable?

Then here’s an idea from a beet-hating friend who wants the benefits but not the taste:

Cut, simmer, mash, strain through a cheese cloth and freeze in ice cube trays. Add the beet ice cubes to smoothies for an extra nutritional punch.

“I bury the taste so I don’t have to suffer,” she said.

So drink your beets!
