"Beets are deadly serious"
(from Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins)
The deep magenta-colored veggie that I hate. The after-taste is almost unbearable. The smell of it in my smoothie is rather appetite-crusher. But because God has a good sense of humor, He puts extra benefits into beets. Beet helps reduces high blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular disease, may protect against liver disease, and provides anti-cancer benefits. It has specific “dietary fiber” that provides special benefit particularly related to health of digestive tract.
So I keep on putting beets into my smoothie. The health benefits of this veggie just make it irresistable. I even started to grow love for beets.
Here’s I give a link if you would like to do a little more reading about beets. Or you can always google.
Beet salad in Kem Chick, Pacific Place, is recommended. It actually tastes really good.
