Beets & Me, Part 2

I’ve mentioned before how I hate beets. They taste like dirt to me. However, I can’t discount the fact that they’re the number one veggie when it comes to antioxidants and that they’re super good for you.

So, off I went to find some way to prepare beets to mitigate their dirt taste and still keep their really good properties.

Y’all, Beechnut has beet, pear, and pomegranate baby food. Yep, and it looks like red applesauce. I bought two cases of the stuff and, while it still tastes of beets, the pear and the pomegranate make it palatable.

I ordered the cases from Walmart. Guess who has gotten a couple of emails welcoming baby to the family in the past week? 🙂

  1. LOL…

    Have you tried golden beets? I don’t know how they compare to the red ones for antioxidants but I like them better. I started using them in my healing bone broth diet. You might check them out…

    • I haven’t tried them, Lenna. I looked for them in two grocery stores and haven’t been able to find them. I’ll let you know if I’m successful.

      • You might try the organic or natural foods markets. We have them at Whole Foods, Natural Grocers and Market of Choice here in town. They also may be out of season as they’re a root vegetable. I haven’t looked for them in the big chain grocery stores. I got turned on to them when on my organic food only diet…

  2. 👏👶🤜🤛 Yeah Karen Congrats on the new Grandbaby coming!
    I can imagine Stanley rolling his eyes thinking “Oh bother…sigh” Big Hug Stanley 😘

    • You know, Bridget, sometimes I do wish I would be able to have grandchildren, but that’s not in the cards, unfortunately. Maybe Stanley is like my furry grandchild. Heaven knows he’s spoiled enough. 🙂

  3. And we did not even know you were going to hear the patter of little feet….oh ……of course you have Stanley for that.
