There are some foods that I really don’t enjoy eating.
Healthy or not.
Beets are one of them.
Personally, I think they taste like dirt.
So the only way I’m gonna even give them a chance is if they’re accompanied with something awesome and look like this.
Now I will serve myself a plate of THIS ANY DAY!
Look how beautiful it is y’all. It’s like a flower in celebration.
It’s been 3 years since I’ve transformed my body through BodyFoodFreedom. This was one of the first dishes that I created to help me eat better.
Let’s be honest. If you are anything like I was, then you don’t find eating vegetables to be mind blowing. Not like eating a piece of cream cake or an ice cream cone #ImJustSayin
And since I like to be blown away on a regular basis (or else life gets too boring) then I have to figure out how to make EVERY THING I EAT amaze me. Eating a plate of unseasoned barley mixed with broccoli for health’s sake is just not my cup of tea.
I like my food to look pretty and taste good. I want what I eat to make love to my insides when I eat it.
If you like pretty, delicious, healthy food too. Then pull up a seat and join me. I made us a plate of beets.Print
