Thanks to my sister-in-law and her unused gift card, I enjoyed my first trip to Whole Foods this week! Very exciting and completely overwhelming at the same time, but I did manage to survive.
After finding most of my usuals and almost checking out, we found the cafe and play place. So I sent Lance with the kids while I took one last spin.
Love Beets has these little guys all ready to go in different flavors. I chose the Organic Mild Vinegar because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to use them and wanted something neutral. I almost left with Honey and Ginger and am regretting not just getting both! They also have more flavors AND more beet products.
Beets in general are something I don’t recall ever really eating, but I know the health benefits are vast. And come on, any natural food that stains your skin like that must be good for you (be warned!).
Quinoa is always part of my weekly meal prep, so that’s why I use it on so many of my recipes–but why not?
Quinoa is awesome.
So to make a complete dish of this I combined my white quinoa with chopped broccoli. Tossed with sliced Love Beets (I only used one!), and sprinkled with feta because I’ve succumbed to the fact that my life is not complete without cheese.
I love the way the beets color the quinoa and give the salad a tangy kick of flavor. No dressing necessary!
With my meal prep and one tiny package of Love Beets, I personally have about 4 days of salads–either as lunch, or on the side for dinner.
Are you a beet fan?
