And the winner is ....

First I want to talk about beets. (I know, not very exciting) But  Tawnee (TRi*Tawn)  had an excellent post on the health benefits for endurance athletes that come from raw beets.  I just have to share! 
So why not throw it in my daily smoothie?  Today I headed over to Publix to pick up a three pack (so in Florida they come in 3's) and try it out.  And all I can say yumm..it was an excellent addition to my daily smoothie goodness.  I'm still waiting for my pee to be dis-colored, but it has not happened yet.  Bummer.
I don't have a vitamix - so I cleaned the beet and then chopped it up.  My blender had no problem blending it together. 



I just have to thow in how wonderful the color is.  

Now too the Bad-Ass-Giveaway:

 I just want to thank everyone who entered this give-a-way.  I just love Betty Designs and want to spread the love!  Check out her site when you get the chance!
And the winners are (thanks to random.org):

Congrats!  Please e-mail me your address when you have the chance! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!  I would also like to throw out a huge Happy Birthday to my 'little' brother!

I havn't had a beet since I was young. And I hated them. Maybe I should give them another chance in a smoothie. It looked so pretty.
