Tips for Making Beets More Easily Digestible?

Good Questions

Q: Our CSA provides us with a lot of beets, but every time I prepare them (whether roasted or raw), my fiancé and I both experience, um, digestive problems if we eat more than one beet between the two of us. Since we're getting about 3-4 beets per week, any tips on how to up our consumption?

Sent by AmyEditor: The only thing I can think of suggesting is to make sure you're eating the beets as part of a larger meal. I've found that sometimes eating a good variety of foods can help mitigate the digestive issues from one ingredient.

Readers, what are your suggestions?
