Beets: they're everywhere these days (but mostly the New York Times). In the news, on "must-eat" lists, in restaurants, in your salad from the salad bar, in your kitchen at home. So good for you, so delicious. Until about two years ago I assumed I hated them because they're ugly, they're weird, their name is vaguely onomatopoetically creepy, and they stain your poop red when you eat a lot of them. But then I had some really good ones--I believe it was a delicious red and golden beet salad--and everything changed. Hopefully referring to feces in this post will help everyone go eat some great beets.
Lot of breaking news today.
