Valentine’s Day Heart-Beet Chocolate Mousse

Valentine’s Day Heart-Beet Chocolate Mousse
What makes a food appropriate for Valentine’s day (also known in Latin America as the day of love and friendship)? It makes sense to me that foods known as aphrodisiacs or which promote the production of oxytocin, our bonding hormone, would be a good start. Dubbed “the love hormone”, many of us are currently depleted in oxytocin, which is produced when we experience positive social interactions and pleasant physical touch. (While the recipe mak...

Beet ‘N’ Berry Overnight Cauli Proats

Beet ‘N’ Berry Overnight Cauli Proats
This is one of my absolute favourite overnight oat combos. Honestly, I am addicted to the colour, the taste, and how happy and satisfied I feel after eating them. Salus Red Beet Crystals have become a staple in my home (sponsored). Even if you don’t like beets, these are worth a try. They’re naturally sweet, less “earthy” than regular beets, and rich in vitamins, minerals, and plant-based compounds such as betalains and nitrates. Among their...

Sunburn ‘Sicles: Red Beet Ice Pops

Sunburn ‘Sicles: Red Beet Ice Pops
For the kids and the kids at heart, try this electrolyte replenishing, oxygenating ice pop post-play.

To restore that fluid balance and help our muscles recover from exercise, beverages that contain these electrolytes are extremely important. Where do we get these electrolytes if not from Gatorade? Of co...

Muhammara Red Pepper Dip with Red Beet Crystals

Muhammara Red Pepper Dip with Red Beet Crystals
Muhammara Red Pepper Dip with Red Beet Crystals Mmm is for muhammara! It may even be better than hummus. Traditionally, smoky roasted red peppers—the version from Aleppo uses the region’s distintive spicy peppers—are made into a spread and their flavor is mellowed using breadcrumbs, walnuts, and pomegrate molasses. Our twist on the classic muhammara omits the bread and substitutes Red Beet Crystals for pomegranate molasses to add a sweet and t...

#RoséAllDay | Red Beet Crystal Chia Pudding

I read an article recently titled “8 Things that Prove that You’re Basic.” One of them was using the hashtag #RoséAllDay. Well, I guess that makes me pretty darn basic! But I think I’m okay with it ;) This Rosé Chia Cup, on the other hand, is anything but basic! What elevates this easy vegan chia pudding recipe and really makes it pop are these Red Beet Crystals from Flora (US/CA)! I think it comes as no surprise that chia pudding has become a ...
