    yeah-- can't get past this. Especially when there are so many fruits and veggies that taste so freakin' good.

    I crave pickled beets after a long ride. Maybe I need iron or something...

    I agree with the bolded. The first time you eat a beet you may be like WTF is wrong with my parts...but do not worry, that is just the beets turning everything red. I really like beets, have three in the fridge that I am going to eat this weekend.

    I like beets. I grow some in my small garden. Pickled beets are awesome!

    Juicing can be a great way to concentrate the nutrition in healthy foods including beets. For me, it's not always easy to eat the amount of fruits and vegetables I should. Juicing helps me do that and minimizing the amount of fiber I consume which does help my performance on a bike.

    The vascular effects of beetroot is so incredibly fast. I once drank a pint of beetroot juice and nearly fainted.
