Beets are great...a little high in sugar but not bad. The nice thing about them (as I was just reading the other day) is that because they're so fibrous, the sugar in them is released very slowly - so overall it has a very low glycemic impact. Not sure if that's the right term, but, yeah. It's not as bad as other things with the same amount of sugar.
...plus they're supposed to be quite good for blood pressure.
I roast my own with evoo and balsamic vinegar...love 'em!! I'll roast up 3-4 medium beets at once and eat them over the course of 3-4 days as a side dish or on salads. They're great because they're good hot or cold!
