any of the good online nutrition databases should give this info, here's a couple of carrot examples from nutritiondata.com, raw carrots (with serving size set at 100g), Total Carbohydrate 9.6g, Dietary Fiber 2.8g, Starch 1.4g,... (more)

Hello, after having done extensive research on the internet, I'm still confused with regards to whether beets and carrots are good choice while doing 21 day sugar detox. These two seem to be present in many 21 day detox recipes, but aren't they... (more)

Of the 2, the beets I ate yesterday tasted suspiciously sweet. Not to mention the bright red pee that startled me last night. :-)) When you're in a temporarily restricted situation, I'm with greymouser and would just skip both. Otherwise, I treat... (more)

I just made this and it was easy and tasted pretty bearable (I am not the biggest beet fan)...like a sour minerally fizzy drink. I know the WAPF people are very into it, but I am wondering if anyone here makes and drinks it regularly and if they... (more)

I love the earthy flavor of beet kvass, but no, I can't point to any specific health benefits other than the fact that it is a probiotic drink. I probably don't drink enough of it to see big changes. I make my own and it's just marginally... (more)

well, are they?

Yes. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. As other posters said, keep an eye on overall carbs. Be aware that they might turn your poop or urine red. No harm, but it can be startling. A great way to eat beets is as beet... (more)

Hi everybody! I follow a very very strict version of Paleo, not for weight loss but for health reasons (I have a wide range of health issues, from gluten intolerance to gastric erosion). Basically, I follow the following formula: if my stomach... (more)

Treat'em the same as you would sweet potatoes. They're also a good source of starches. Ditto carrots. Beets are awesome. Super nutritious stuff. The only dangers I could find (other than overdoing them and getting an insulin spike): From... (more)

Melissa's question about beeturia got me thinking about how we can use indicators at home to track our health. Stool quality is a good one, following the bristol stool scale and noting color, frequency, timing, etc. As a person with celiac... (more)

1) If I have any sense that I've improved or slipped, I check my BP, pulse and BG. I'm going through an n=1 experiment right now and, sadly, I came out on the losing end. I mentioned in other threads that I used my water kefir to create sourdough... (more)

I have a ton of beautiful beets in my garden right now that are ripe for the pickin'. Are beets a healthy paleo option, or is the sugar/carb content too high? I am trying to slim down a bit (probably another 10 lbs), so take this into account in... (more)

I like beets, enough that I've eaten them every day for the last week. But I have to stop the the beet love in here. You said you're trying to slim down, beets are not going to help you do that. You also indicated you were under the impression... (more)

Hello all, The other day while shopping I saw beets had dropped to rock bottom prices, so I picked up a bunch of 'em, took them home, wrapped them in foil and threw them in the oven for an hour. I then proceeded to eat 3 or 4 of them myself (my... (more)

I would suggest not eating the beets for lunch if you want to find out if they are the culprits - and if you have another BM that is suspicious I would go see your doc!

The recipe I have for roasting beets has far more sugar than I realized. I need a new recipe. Preferably fast, easy, and picky-eater friendly. Bonus points for incorporating the greens. Any way to shred/slice them and then sautee?

Roast them in a little coconut oil, and when they're done toss them in fresh orange juice (blood oranges work wonderfully), a little orange zest, and salt and serve them on a bed of belgian endive with a sprinkling of walnuts.

Beeturia is caused by eating beets. The symptom is that your urine and stool can turn bright red. There is some evidence that it can be caused by low stomach acid, anemia, or leaky gut...or maybe just caused by variance in genetics or gut... (more)

Decades ago, I called my doctor in a panic because my urine was blood red and, of course, I assumed I was bleeding to death. There was a pause on the phone and he asked, "What did you eat for supper last night?" And, again of course, I had... (more)
