Eat Your Beets!
One of my most regular blog readers, who happens to be a psychologist working with elite British athletes (so he knows a thing or two!) has long been touting the benefits of eating beets (or as my husband, being a fellow Brit calls this plant, beetroot).
For those of us who ARE endurance athletes, eating beetroot in advance of a workout is being shown to help improve said endurance.
Since it's off season for me from Ironman, and I spent the last two weeks in a semi-recovery phase while I get ready for the NYC Marathon, I've been doing a bit of experimenting and have completed several key workouts fueled by beets…and soft boiled eggs and coconut, of course…
Give them a try yourself- whether you're getting ready for a run, or would simply like yet another health benefit from your PALEO diet when you're preparing them under, perhaps, a roast turkey.
