I love beets. Raw, roasted, juiced-I’ll take them anyway I can get them. To quote my sisters wedding toast, “anyone who knows Sara even a little bit knows that the great love of Sara’s life next to Doug, Maddie, musical theater, and clothing… is beets. “ You can imagine my delight in finding a beet salad in paradise on my honeymoon.  And yes, as soon as I knew they had beets in the kitchen I had them juice them for me each morning!
