Good morning friends ☀️ Here is the recipe for the beetroot hummus I was making yesterday. Even if you’re not a fan of beets you may love this recipe. It is a great way to add healthy beetroot nutrients into your diet.
•2 large beets
•1 can Chickpeas (15 oz)
•Juice of 1 lemon
•2 large garlic cloves (minced)
•1 tsp ground cumin
•½ teaspoon smoked paprika
•2 tablespoons olive oil
•¼ tsp salt
•Pepper to taste
1. Peel and cut beets into small, about 1 inch, squares. (I use rubber gloves when handling beets not to stain my hands). Add water to double boiler and then beets, steam until fork tender, about 15 minutes.
2. While the beets are cooking add chickpeas, lemon juice, minced garlic, cumin, paprika, olive oil and salt into the food processor or blender.
4. Once beets have cooled off a little, add them to the food processor and purée all ingredients until the desired texture.
Garnish with cilantro or dill. Serve with crackers. #hummus#beetroot#beetroothummus#hummusrecipe#foodphotography#foodstyling#hummuslove#beetrootdip#selfmagazine#thefeedfeed#weightwatchers#mindbodygreen#livegreenhealthy#wholefoods#eatingwell#huffposttaste#cookinglight

•5 mint leaves
•2 oz rum
•2 oz watermelon raspberry @wanulife water (or other flavored water of your choice)
•juice from 1 blood orange
•juice from 1/2 lime
•juice from 1/4 cup fresh raspberries (mash raspberries and strain to remove the seeds)
•In a tall glass place mint leaves and rum. •Muddle for a minute, but don't break leaves. Remove or leave the mint leaves in the glass.
•Add ice to fill the glass.
•Add wanu water, blood orange juice, lime juice and raspberry juice. Stir.
•Top with sparkling water. Enjoy! #halloween#drinks#halloweendiy#halloweendrinks

Happy Friday friends! I started my day with this pretty smoothie. It’s a good one to save for fall & winter because it is full of phytonutrients to keep your immune system healthy during the cold season. • 1 cup filtered water
• 1 tomato
• 1/2 red beet
• 5 strawberries
• 1/4 cup avocado
• 1/4 cup almonds
Mix all ingredients together in a blender & enjoy! #vitamix#thefeedfeed#food52#wholefoods#cookinglight
Sponsored by @iHerb! During most fall & winter months my go-to breakfast is a nice bowl of warm oatmeal. It could get a bit boring at times so I try to change up flavors & toppings once in a while. In my new recipe I use freeze-dried pomegranate arils. Not only do they add a tasty flavor but they are loaded with polyphenols (which improve or help treat digestion issues, weight management difficulties, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular diseases) Here is a super easy recipe:
1 cup quick cook oatmeal
1 cup almond milk
1 tablespoon California Gold Nutrition Pomegranate Arils
Combine almond milk & oatmeal in a saucepan, bring to a boil, lower and let simmer for 3 minutes. Add Pomegranate arils and simmer for another 2 minutes. Remove from hear and dransfer to a bowl. Top with your favorite berries and enjoy! ***All customers can get a discount off their order by clicking the link in my bio.*** #ad#californiagoldnutrition#cgnhealth#iherbrecipe#iherb#breakfast#healthybreakfast#breakfastideas#pomegranate
