The rage about healthier food choices has increased dramatically. What to eat and not to eat, what’s healthy and what isn’t but at the end of the day all you really need is a nourishing meal.
Food doesn’t need to cost you the earth but it can come from the earth. I remember growing up eating plant based food which wasn’t fashionable it was simply a way of life.
In comes beetroot with amazing health benefits, easy to cook, and affordable.
If you have a blender or a food processor then you can make a beet hummus but if you don’t have one you can still include beetroot into you diet without it being hummus.
Here are some no food processor recipes unless you are need to drink your beets then you need a blender!
Every cook/chef needs a day to call toast dinner. That’s it.
Toast is normally served with avocado or some type of cheese but when served with a load of fresh greens including a type of pesto it gives the word ‘toast‘ a whole new look and taste!
Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love to cook and do so almost every day and sometimes up to 4 times a day. I know right? There are 3 meals in a day and I’m cooking 4 different types of meals a day. Okay😊
Of-course you can have it with only the pesto but the veggies make it a more complete meal otherwise you are back again for something else to eat a few hours later. Paired off with a good wine, that for me is what I call those tiny blessings of a perfect evening.
This could have been an avocado toast post because there’s that, instead I present to you this beet hummus spread on homemade bread.
So what exactly makes up this lazy dinner?
Find the recipes for my lazy dinner below except the wine 🙂
Don’t be overwhelmed by making the homemade bread because its absolutely divine, seeded, healthy, oatmeal and very easy.
The garlic is roasted whole (wrapped in foil) slice the head off, drizzle the entire head of garlic with olive oil. Make sure all the cloves are drizzled. Bake at 190 until brown. When you have the oven on for another recipe, bake the garlic and keep in the fridge. Keeps fresh for about 2 to 3 days.
This amazing green spread on toast is another meal that is brilliant and tasty!
When toast is your breakfast, brunch or lunch and you have the ingredients to make it healthy and delicious then it must be worth its weight in value and loaded with earthly goodness.
