He he… come on. That pun was just too good to pass up!
So when I was little, I remember my grandmother feeding me freshly boiled beets (in addition to cookies, of course) from their garden when me, my parents, and my brother went to their house. They were so good. But after that, I forgot about my love for beets, and was too lazy to make them on my own. So one day this summer when I was at Whole Foods, and I came across this:
for a mere buck or two, you know I had to give it a try. I’m generally a total “I don’t eat vegetables from a can” snob, but I had to make an exception for this.
I’m so glad I did! These things are amazing. If you don’t think you like beets but have never tried them, please buy this. I may or may not eat them straight out of the can sometimes. Whatever.
So, in honor of the warmer temperatures and sunshine today, today’s lunch featured said beets (and an awesome leftover sandwich), all lovely and cooked and sliced for me and all I had to do was open a can!
Doesn’t that look yummy?? Goat cheese + beets = heaven.
Goat Cheese and Beet Salad
- Mixed greens
- Baby spinach
- Sliced cucumber
- Sliced beets
- Goat cheese
- Chopped fresh basil (optional)
- Cracked pepper

Easy and awesome. Just throw it all on a plate, top with some balsamic vinaigrette, and enjoy!
What’s your favorite beet recipe?
I had a busy day today full of Bio class and Bio lab. Did I tell you guys I got a 91.5 on my Bio midterm?? Woohooo!!! Especially awesome since the class average was 65?!?
My mom and I are off to have dinner so I must go. Have a lovely evening everyone! :)
