Are you all about the beets? I know I am now! I love everything about beets: the color, the sweet taste and of course the health benefits of consuming it. Growing up in China, I was never exposed to beets until 2 years ago when I lived in Vermont and had beet stew. I remember the stew was dark purple, almost reddish. Scary looking but pleasant to look at. I remember the beets tasted very earthy like I was eating dirt and grass but there was some sweetness to it as well. When I learned beet is a superfood, I started to expose myself to more and more beets.
If you aren’t familiar with beet, beetroot is the taproot portion of the plant and it is available in purple, red or golden color. The taste of beetroot is sweet with an earthy flavor to it. The green portion of the beet or the leaves is known as beet greens.
Conclusion: beets contain many amazing health benefits and it is time to get on with beets!
Fresh beets are available in the grocery store from June to October. Beets prefer the cool weather of Spring and Fall but it is mostly a Fall crop. So what should we do when beets are not available to us during offseason? I don’t know about you but I get beets from Love Beets!
Love Beets company is all about beets! We are in luck! Thanks to Love Beets, we can now enjoy tasty beets during its offseason!
The story of Love Beets company is the true labor of love from husband and wife team, Guy, and Katherine Shropshire. The couple wanted to find a way to attract younger people to beets, so the family came out with unique marinated beet recipes.
Love Beets offers a variety of forms of delivering beets to us: juice, peel and resealed beets, snackable and cooked beets! My favorite on the go option is the beet juice! Available in original flavor or with a hint of ginger. Personally, I really enjoy the ginger one. Beets are naturally sweet with an earthiness to them and a hint of ginger just adds that extra spicy taste!
What I love about Love Beets juice :
No added sugar
No artificial colors
Low in calories
Besides beet juice, Love Beets also offer peeled beets and snackable! Not sure what to do with peeled beets, be sure to check out their recipe page for great ideas!
