      :) Yes! If you eat a lot of beetroot, or the juice, there’s a pink tinge. Maybe you’re not a hyperchondriac like me? ;)

        I am a massive hyperchondriac, I would have been on google in a flash!

    Hey, at least it wasn’t pink for reasons unbeknownst to you!

    OMG! I’m so glad someone else acknowledged this! A few months ago I discovered a bunch of beetroot languishing in my fridge and ate the entire lot in one weekend. I SWEAR TO GOD, I THOUGHT I WAS DYING.

    The colour lasted for over a week. Honestly. Dying. Thought.

    Pinkish tinge? The first time this happened to me it was bright beetroot red! We’d grown beetroot in our garden so it’s probably the first time I had that much available all at once.

    That was early enough in my relationship with Boyd that I wasn’t sure if it was something we could talk about. But it was so weird I had to bring it up and I was so relieved when he just said “yeah, it’s the beetroot” because yay not dying and also yay non-squeamish boyfriend.

    It grows really well by the way. Shove it in a deepish pot with some cheap potting mix and yummy beetroot sandwiches in summer.

      you know I hadn’t even thought of growing beetroot!


      I guess there’s not all that much beetroot in a little pack of chips?

    Root vegetables can be a pain to grow because you need to prepare the soil really well so there’s no clumps and stuff. But throwing them into a pot solves that problem (we use cheap plastic basins from a plastic shop with some holes stabbed in). Radishes are also awesome and grow really fast. Carrots are kind of meh in my experience.
