It's the Good Fats/Good Carbs Guide. Beet once in a while are not going to throw you for a loop. Carrots have been added to the food list and I'm sure beets will not be far behind. They ARE in a recipe.
My pal Jane who is a MOD on here makes Harvard Beets with Splenda. I must get her recipe and post it.
Did you every try chiogga beets? Red and white stripes! Just lovely!
I'm glad nobody in your family likes beets - more for us!
