Hello, it’s me, the beet-lady. I’m beginning to feel like maybe I’m earning that name, seeing as how I’ve previously shared with you a ton of beet recipes and have declared my love for these gorgeous veggies.
Well, just in case you’re like me and can’t get enough, here’s one more to add to your list of “Beet Recipes to Make.”
Doesn’t everyone have one of those lists? No? Just me?
Well, maybe this dip will make you start one! The color alone is enticing enough, don’t you think? What I love in particular is that with the addition of the cumin, this dip is transformed from something really “earthy” (a characteristic many beet-haters call “tastes like dirt”) into a fresh, subtly sweet, slightly smoky dip. I couldn’t get enough of it, and particularly loved it on cucumber rounds. My only regret was that there wasn’t more of it. I might suggest you double the batch.
It’s the new year. For many people, that means making a list of resolutions. You know, promises you make (and likely break) to live better in the new year.
I like to find another way to bring myself back to healthy habits after a season of overindulgence.
I recommit myself to the idea of living healthfully. What’s the difference? I think of recommitment as a mindset, where as resolutions are a list of activities.
I remember that I am happier when I am active. So, I will run with my friends, practice yoga, and dance with my kids.
I feel better when I eat whole foods with an emphasis on fruits and vegetables and whole grains. I will cook up soups and stews, mix up smoothies and drink more herbal tea.
