Beet-viche Recipe

*This recipe is 100% vegan-friendly!

  • 2-3 Whole Beets
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 4-5 Carrots
  • 3 Roma Tomatoes
  • 1 Cilantro Bushel
  • Sea Salt or- Kosher (nothing iodized or bleached- healthier)

Start by washing your beets very well – cut off the ends and roots. Get a small grater and grate the beets. Grate the carrots completely as well. Dice the tomatoes, onions and cilantro. Mix everything together in a container. Add lemon and sea/kosher salt to taste and serve with tostadas and enjoy! Add avocado and tapatio for a most delectable dish.

Health facts: beets (and beet juices) are a blood-building herb that detoxifies blood and renews it with minerals and natural sugars. They can also fight cancer and prevent health defects.

Get to Know the Ovarian Psycos–Mayra

    • Name/Ova Alias: Mayra
    • Your bici’s name/alias: La Bici blue
      • Born and Raised In: Huntington Park/Walnut Park/ South Gate!!!!!
      • Day Job(s)/Night Job(s): Multimedia Tech/Bad Ass 24/7
      • First Ovarian Psycos ride: The seed-bombing ride. We met up at Placita Olvera last year. Overall it was such an eye opening experience, that I knew right there and then that I was HOOKED!
      • Reason(s) for joining/staying: Sisterhood
      • Best and worst experience on a ride: Best experience was seeing women who hadn’t been on a bike in XX amount of years totally having a blast. Also, I love that fact that through the rides, I have been discovering parts of LA I have never seen. Worst: When some guys took over the ride during our suicide awareness ride. I got pissed, not because they were guys, but it was OUR ride. Peeps need to respect and help find a solution together. Not be all quick to “take over” the situation.
  • What have you accomplished/ still hope to accomplish as Ovarian Psycos? I hope we can bring more bike awareness throughout LA. One day there will be bike lanes in all our neighborhoods.
  • Words of wisdom: What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.
