Healing Foods - Beetroot Event Guest Hosting

Hello friends,

This month I am hosting 2 events. The first one is "Only" Event: Low Oil/Low Calorie.

Second one is called Healing Foods which most of you from blog world are already very familiar with. I am very very thankful to Siri for allowing me to host this event for this month.

This month the Healing Food chosen is Beetroot. Now, I am sure I don't even need to introduce this super healthy super food. But, I know, there are still a lot of people who have never used it or do not use it very often, like me. So, this month, it is an inspiration to all of us who are like me to use it in varied ways you can and show your culinary skills.

Please follow this link to know all about Beetroot.
