Beet It

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Today I learned something! My blue water bottle isn't just 4 cups like I've been assuming. I kinda knew this because I filled it up past the highest marking that says "32oz", but I didn't know that I filled it up as high as 1.5 cups extra(!) That means instead of 23 cups of water, I drank about 29 cups of water. And today I'm not at 8, I'm at like 12. I'm trying to curb my water intake a little because I was 3lbs heavier this morning. I must not be able to pee that much in 8 hours :-P So FYI, water is great for your health... not 30+ cups of it. :-P

I tried beets today. I didn't like them. I ate it, but I tried each slice differently, one with salt/pepper, one with garlic, and one with honey. (yeah... a little odd, but it was the way I preferred it not because it made the beet good... but because it masked the taste of the beet.) I got the "sweet" taste to it, but it was both sweet and bitter. I'm not a fan of that. Stuff either needs to be sweet or savory. No in between for me lol

I also had all the colors of foods today for BLC 16! Other that that, I may go for a walk tomorrow, but I should definitely be running Saturday!

    The equation to how much water you should drink.

    Weight in pounds Divided by 2.2 to get the kg (skip this if you use kg as your count)

    This answer times 0.6

    This answer divided by 8 ( as in 8 oz glasses )

    Mine is about 9 glasses.

    I like my beets boiled and added some vinegar to it lol.

    I've never tried beets, and thanks to this review, I'm thinking that I'll probably continue to avoid them, lol. But hooray for hitting the rainbow yesterday!!!

    emoticon WOW on the water. How do you drink so much of it? Some days I can drink 8-10 cups with no problem. Then others it is really hard to drink 8 especially if I drink anything else. Sometimes I just crave something with a flavor.

    I love beets but I prefer them roasted at home. Apparently I've liked beets since I was a kid. I also love brussel sprouts and lima beans which was quite a surprise to me.

    Good job on the colors! Unless v8 counts I've only had green, red, and purply blue.

    Beets are definitely one of those love 'em or hate 'em foods. I like pickled beets in salad. There's a restaurant in Lancaster Co., PA that packages their own foods, and they have baby pickled beets that are awesome! But...I like beets! I' glad you got the rainbow of foods in today!
