LOVE IS COLORFUL
Beets not only add color to our salads, they also add nutrients, minerals and essential vitamins like folate that is essential for our heart health.
This Valentine’s Day I invite you to be creative and choose different color vegetables or ingredients to add to your dishes. You will be surprised how you will fall in love when you discover how each colorful ingredient adds a different nutrient to your dish.
