Eat In. Carrot/beet salad.

Beets are unequivocally a super food. They are good for your eyes, blood, they help with digestion, are full of vitamins and fiber, and are low in calories. The only problem is that most people hate them.

But shredding beets and mixing with equal parts of shredded carrots masks some of the nasty flavor that people don't like. I first found this delicious salad as a prepackaged salad from Dole at my supermarket, but that's far more expensive than buying carrots and beets and shredding them, and that's not too much work.

I just pour some flavored olive oil over the beet/carrot mix and add salt to taste. An amazing side dish.
