One of my favorite things about this challenge is all the new recipes I've been trying. We're eating way more veggies than ever before and I'm enjoying (almost) everything I cook! There were a couple duds, namely a Thai carrot soup (gross), but we've had a lot of successes. Last night we had beets for the very first time and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised:
This dish was boiled beets and red potatoes, seasoned with salt, pepper, and fresh parsley, topped with over-easy eggs. Colorful, easy and so yummy! I expected beets to have a stronger flavor, but they were really similar to potatoes, and apparently they are a fraction of the calories of potatoes. I see lots of potential there! The best part is how much we quoted the Office during this dinner. Beets. Bears. Battlestar Galactica. (10 brownie points if you know that episode)
I picked some turnips at a farm we visited this week. Haven't ever tried turnips either; hopefully they turn out as good as the beets! Happy healthy eating everyone!
