Purple Potatoes and Beets



Sack of purple and pink potatoes, beets, and cucumbers fresh out of the garden.

The girls and I processed the beets tonight. We washed, peeled, and cut off the greens to eat later (we put the greens in smoothies).  Then we grated all the beets and froze them for later.  We'll use those for smoothies and burgers.  We love these beet burgers here.




If you asked me two years ago whether or not my family would be beet eaters, I'd of said, "NO WAY!"   But thanks to Dr. Greger's videos as motivation, we've found ways to incorporate them into our diet.  If you don't already know the advantages of beets or purple potatoes check out this video by Dr. Greger about purple potatoes.... and this one about how eating beets can actually help you run faster.
