{Today’s Lunchbox} Conquering the Beet Fear

Today’s lunchbox included lunch and three snacks:

  • Hummus, with raw green pepper (hidden under the broccoli) for dipping, as well as a raw bread idea/attempt (a mashup of Faye’s Onion Bread method and Gena’s Raw Zucchini Wrap recipe)
  • Carob cacao overnight oats
  • Shirley’s Pumpkin Pie Smoothie with Honey Agave Whipped Cream – as you will see in my Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger post tomorrow, Shirley was one of the two the gluten-free bloggers I adopted this month.  I have become completely obsessed with this smoothie, even though it is summer.
  • A cucumber, celery, beet, lemon juice I picked up from Java Green – I am still working on my fear of beets.  I asked for extra lemon in my juice but that was actually too sour, and I love lemon. I still gulped it down though:

Any tips on liking beets in juice more? I like carrots instead so much more.

Looks like you're going for an all veggie juice, but a little apple and a little ginger work really well with beets for me. Celery has such a distinct taste, as do beets, so I tend not to have them together. Good luck!

I think Melissa (Gluten Free For Good) is the queen of all things beets. You might look to her blog for some flavor combo inspiration. 😉

I had forgotten that you had adopted me, too! So exciting. I'm thrilled you are enjoying that pumpkin pie smoothie so much. I just shared that for something the other day. I have to stock up on organic canned pumpking at the upscale grocery store in town as I still can't get any pumpkin at my basic grocery store. :-(

Happy Friday, Valerie!

I'm not a juicer, but love beets and banana in smoothie fashion. The two are like soulmates.
