Katie Pitre, who runs Tecolote Farms in Austin, Texas, grows four types of the root veggie on her small, organic farm, and she thinks Obama is missing out big time by saying no to beets.
She says, I think its a shame nobody ever cooked them right for Barack. He doesnt know how delicious and sweet they are.
Pitre assumes Obama has only had canned beets because theres no way anyone would turn down fresh-steamed beets loaded with butter and salt.
Though Pitre thinks the prez needs to be a big boy and eat his beets, shes not worried that others will follow suit and pass on the veggie.
She explains, I think anyone who already knows the joy of beets will realize his failure and let him suffer alone.
Pitre invites Obama to sample her yummy veggies and wants him to know that eating beets offers a little surprise when you go to the bathroom.
