Beet Yo­gurt Bowl

Canadian Running - - FOOD -

Want to take ad­van­tage of the proven per­for­mance boost­ing ben­e­fits of beets but can’t stom­ach the straight-up blood red juice? This beet purée is more sweet than earthy and pairs de­li­ciously well with creamy yo­gurt. A scat­ter­ing of gra­nola or muesli on top adds crunch and ex­tra carbs mak­ing each bowlful an even bet­ter way to kick-start a spir­ited run.
