Do you want to elevate your performance on the ski slopes next season? Try beets to ramp-up your energy levels and speed. In a recent article from Outside Magazine called “Never Miss a Beet”, the root vegetable was praised for its nitrates which improve efficiency in a workout or training regimen. Allen Lim, a well-known sports physiologist, claims to have seen “some of the best real-world performances from athletes who make [beets] part of their diet”.
To boost your performance, try Beet Gazpacho provided by Tabernash Tavern close to Winter Park Resort or Chilled Beet Soup provided by The Wildflower Restaurant near Snowbird Ski Resort. Both of these recipes are featured in the Ski Town Soups cookbook.
