Ode To Beets

This homage to beets was inevitable - I eat them so often! There is something so incredibly luscious about beets - the vibrant color, the healthy vitamins, the flavor - pure delight! Last night I had hot dogs topped with a tomato, beet, goat cheese, balsamic vinaigrette combination and it was UNREAL in it's deliciousness. A beet and goat cheese salad is my old standby for nights when I am unsure what to have for dinner. I found some great beet recipes at Body + Soul magazine, which is a publication from Martha Stewart Living that gives really interesting ideas on "whole living" aka healthy, natural eating, exercising, and mental habits. I always find valuable points when perusing the site or the latest issue when I'm home in Maine (my mom subscribes)!

  1. Agree 100% with you on the beet thing. They are amazing. Sadly, my BF is not a fan so I don't get them at home too much. But anytime I eat out and they are om the menu it's pretty much a guarantee that I'm getting them.



Leave a lovely bit of your own marginalia!
