I Beet You I can be a Star!!! Part of Me (Lyric) + Roasted Beet Salad Recipe

This is the song that’s getting some heavy playing right now…

Aside from the really awesome beat that’s keeping me awake during long ___ amongest other things…  🙂  (I am talking about my commute here just so you know. 😉 )

I know I am weird for saying this, but I do write a lot about food on this blog, so indulge me one moment please. 🙂

Now… IMAGINE a long overlooked or a misunderstood ingredient in your fridge or cupboard singing this song now that it has become a featured ingredient of a dish?

Ohhh..how about Beets? Beets can be singing this song to whatever other ingredients that was giving her a hard time.

Days like this I want to drive away [probably in a red hot convertible]

Pack my bags and watch your shadow fade [yeah…you bully bell pepper you…]

‘Cause you chewed me up and spit me out [some people just don’t appreciate Beets]

Like I was poison in your mouth [Ouch!]

You took my light, you drained me down [Overcooking is not good]

That was then and this is now

Now look at me [Woohoo!]

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, NO  [Perfect Beet with it’s beet red color!!!]

This is the part of me that you’re never gonna ever take away from me, NO


Okay, I am done… I really do think this song is very empowering. Enjoy this song or better yet — Sing along with it. And make yourself a really nice Roasted Beet Salad while at it. Recipe below. xxoo

  1. Great song, great recipe, and great recommendation for using an often-overlooked vegetable. The only change I would make is that when I roast beets, I first wrap them in aluminum foil. Not sure if it’s really necessary, but it does seem to keep them juicy.

  2. I needed a chuckle this morning – hillarious post. The pancake syrup has not seen the light of day in a while in our fridge and it has even been shoved to the back of the fridge:( Have a Great Day!

  3. Okay, I will be honest.. I haven’t heard this song lol. I’ve been so busy with real life I haven’t actually listened to some good music. I actually like this song. And the beet salad looks good and I don’t even like beets lol

    • Glad you like the song Kay. As for the beet salad. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but I do like it with a good vinegrette dressing. 🙂 And this post…I get super silly sometimes and today’s one of them…Lol.

  4. Haha, love the additions to the lyrics. That song has crept into my brain too and I frequently find myself singing along.

    I’m eating a lot of beetroot at the moment and this looks like a great new recipe to try. Thank you! 🙂

    • The lyrics catchy and is meaningful. Love Katy Perry’s song and her voice fits so perfect with it. It also makes me wanna move around a bit while I listen. 🙂 Glad you enjoy the humor. I have one of those crazy moments where I was like, hey, what if…? 🙂
