If you don't like beets, boy are you missing out. As a child I never liked beets. As an adult, I love them. My husband can not stand them. I eat my beets alone. Gladly. I don't have to worry about him eating my beets.
There are a lot of recipes for orange and beet salad. You don't have to get fancy for it to taste good. All you need is some oilve oil, cider vinegar, salt, and of course an orange and beets. Oranges are about 70 calories a piece and 1/2 cup of beets are 37 calories. It makes a great lunch.
