Quinoa Beet Salad – JennifersKitchen

Let me be very clear. I do not like beets. I’ve spent over fifty years disliking beets.

I’ve tried them boiled (gag-inducing), roasted (almost tolerable, but no), raw (the additional chewing required just prolongs the misery), and picked (where’s the bathroom?).

Quinoa Beet Salad Ingredients

To me, beets taste like garden dirt laced with a little bit of sugar. Interestingly, there is validity to that perception. Beets contain a naturally-occurring compound called geosmin, and geosmin gives beets their dirt-like . . . er. . . earthy flavour.

Mucho protein, amigo

I found a review article at Animal Frontiers that makes the argument in favor of meat consumption. The authors admit little focus on the downsides of eating meat. I’ve been cutting back on my meat consumption out of sympathy for the animals. Here are some of the key points verbatim:

Fructose is a simple sugar (a monosaccharide) typically found in fruit, honey, and some vegetables. Table sugar is sucrose, a combination of fructose and

Recipe: Peggy’s Indian Cabbage | Diabetic Mediterranean Diet

From Peggy at Buttoni’s Low-Carb Recipes:

If you think you don’t like cabbage (like my husband) you have GOT to try this recipe! You’ll swear you don’t eat cabbage!! No cabbage odor or strong taste whatsoever to this dish! It is a delightfully crunchy side dish with grilled Tandoori Chicken or pork chops! I order my nigella seeds (black onion seeds or how about seed) on-line, but you may be lucky to have a spice supplier where you live. I would not recommend omitting them, as you will miss out on a flavor layer
