Fun With Pee

Apparently, only 14% of the population is susceptible to “Beeturia” (the excretion of red beetroot pigment betalaine in urine). And I am one of them! I’ve rediscovered my love for beets recently, so I’ve been roasting them and putting them in my salads. So delicious. But I’ve also been having crazy, BRIGHT RED pee, that was a bit alarming at first, but since I was literally consuming boatloads of beets it wasn’t hard to put two and two together.  Now, it’s just like “Hey cool, neat-o, look at that.”

So within the past week, I’ve had the stinky asparagus pee and bright red beet pee. Wonder what other fun science experiments I can come up with? I’ve also noticed my urine stinks after I eat the canned white turkey breast from Trader Joe’s (also a yummy addition to salads). That one isn’t such a fun treat, as it really REALLY stinks. Like turkey butt. Only coming from your front end.

    Beautiful Girl,
    I can’t believe your comments! Gma P. could have told you about the beets, but I don’t think I’ll let her read your comments on the subject as I’m sure she would not believe her eyes. Love you honey!
