I like beets. I like “blood doping” with beets even more. Beet juice works, but I prefer meals from bowls rather than bottles. So here is a soup I made help training and racing.


4 small beets, cooked, cooled and peeled, cubed

2 medium russet potatoes peeled and cubed

1 carrot sliced

1 stalk celery chopped

1/2 onion chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 head of green cabbage, chopped

1 can white or kidney beans drained and rinsed

1 t dried dill, or 1 T fresh

1/2 t carraway seeds

2 whole cloves, optional

4 C broth or stock


Saute onion, garlic, carrot, and celery until they soften a little. Add potatoes, beets, cabbage, and broth or stock. Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or so. Add beans and seasonings and cook until veggies are all cooked to your liking. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Feel your endothelium relax and your blood flow easier!
