October 11, 2013

Author Notes: Beets are gorgeous! All day long - juice them in the morning, eat as a salad at lunch, mix with grains in the evening... It´s a super root that does miracles to one´s health!

This recipe is quick & easy to make. Even non-beet-lovers will give it a try! I promise :)

And it looks lovely on a table!
