Beets on the menu

Vegetables are a must on a diet.  I suggest carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.  ~Jim Davis
I like this quote... Infact I`m planning what cake I should bake for the weekend right now.  But for a normal day like today, some colorful highly nutritious vegetables are what goes on my plate. Lately, I have been craving beets. I know, I know - it is a strange vegetable that tastes like dirt and discolors your fingers when you touch it. On the flip side, it is a sweet beautiful vegetable with higher content of iron then even spinach... and it is known for it`s blood cleansing properties that rid the body of many unwanted ailments. So Yes please - serve me some of that! =)
About the "beautiful" part, if you cook a golden beet and peel it, you will find that it contains the colors of a sunset..
I like to eat my beets with a little bit of blue cheese and LOTS of garlic. Trust me, this meal is like heaven for your body!

When was the last time you ate beets? =)
