If you’re a product of the 90’s and actually watched cartoons when cartoons were cartoons, then chances are, you know Doug Funnie, Patti, Skeeter (who thought that was a good idea for a name) and of course The Beets, doug’s all-time favorite band, and “the greatest fiction band of all-time” according to Things90sKidsRealize.com.  Which by the way, is a really neat site about 90’s pop culture and you should check it out.

Anywho, back to the beets.  Well, the real ones that is.  As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been experimenting a bit with my food which have included eating foods with more Vitamin A, hence the carrot salad, and reducing my starch intake.   Beets, however, seem to be a great choice as they have anti-bacterial and anti-fungal qualities which is great for digestion.

Thus, the reason behind today’s recipe.  I did a little research online and found several recipes that included goat cheese (which, you could very easily do) yet since I do not tolerate dairy very well, I opted out.  This would be a great side dish, you could toss it in with a salad or just eat on it’s own…much like I’m doing right now.


Raw Citrus Beet Salad with Mint



Grate the beets in a big mixing bowl.

Squeeze the juice of just 1 of the oranges into the beets.

  1. How big are your beets? Some I find are huge (3″ in diameter)…others are smaller.
