Eating Beets

Hi Kelli, I’d like to know if my love of beets is a good thing and it eating them is helping my cycling in any way?

Kelli’s Answer:

As a true SuperFood vegetable with a beautiful color, it’s hard to beat beets.  They can be intimidating, I know, but it looks like they aren’t for you.  You are definitely on the right track by including them in your diet.  For those who aren’t “Loving the Beets”, it just takes some getting used to.  Try adding them to salads, smoothies, and even snacking on them with my Beet Chips Recipe, you’ll find them a wonderful addition to your meals and snacks.

And, as an athlete, you’ll certainly enjoy the cellular and whole-body benefits for your eyes, blood, and heart!
