Unless youâ€™ve been eating beets.
Beets are arguably the hottest vegetable around right now and you canâ€™t open a newspaper or look at a food blog without finding beet recipes. Roasted beets, beet salad, sauteed beets… theyâ€™re everywhere.
But back to the amusing side effects. When many people eat beets, their stool takes on a bright red bloody color. It may also turn your urine red, which is hilarious — unless youâ€™re not expecting it, then itâ€™s not so funny.
Very few items about beets mention this amazing phenomena, focusing mainly on the beets healthful benefits and unique earthy flavor. I urge you to take the plunge with the humble beet. Serve it to someone unfamiliar with their magical properties and watch them run screaming from the bathroom the next day.
