Although Dwight Schrute thinks everyone likes beets, I know better. That’s because my roommate for life is not a huge fan…That’s right, Adam says no to beets. But FUN FACT, I gave this banana beet smoothie to Ad last night and he gave me the two thumbs up, and guess what, there were beets in it (he still doesn’t know that.) – So that’s a win for me!
I’ll have you know, that the behind the scenes footage of this photoshoot was NOT pretty. My sweet little Pip was so curious that he actually brought down my props and 2 full jars of this vegan beet smoothie spilled all over the floor. I. Was. Not. Impressed. Totally not the little guy’s fault, but c’mon. So after I cleaned it up and remade the smoothies for photos, I called it a day and headed to the beach. Luckily it didn’t spill on our white rug, so a word of caution… beets stain. Don’t let your cat sniff your smoothie over your white rug.
Make Dwight proud, and drink your beets! ♥ #bearsbeetsbattlestargalactica
