I grew up eating plenty of vegetables. We grew our own for the most part on our family farm. I enjoyed corn, carrots, broccoli, beans, and cauliflower. Sure, we may have sometimes gone to great measures not to eat certain vegetables... that's what kids do, right? Of course, it wasn't just vegetables, but I digress.

But beets? Never did we have those! It might have been because my Mom grew up eating them and hated them. She just couldn't subject her kids to the same form of torture. I mean, after all, they have staining powers. Imagine what they do to our insides?! Danielle, however, was more than happy to introduce us to the only food I've ever eaten that tastes like dirt. Sorry, all you beet lovers out there. I just can't get on board. Oh, and it's not just me. Courtlin is a definite NO on these things, too.
