Sent Le Hüsband to the shops to buy some beetroot, I asked for some raw beetroots with dirt on them as I needed them for my pinky-red warm breakfast smoothie bowl.

He came back with some cooked beetroot as they did not have any raw beetroot - so with my smoothie dreams over I decided to get creative with these cooked beetroots.I remember the first time I had beetroots, my Mum was going through a juicing phase cos there was this diet 'Hallelujah Diet' where you had to eat everything raw.

Anyhoo I came home from Uni and like most Mums, mine complained about me looking ill and underfed. Fair enough a diet of 2-minute noodles is anything but balanced. She decided to make me some beetroot and aloe vera juice and I drank it for peace sake as It was absolutely disgusting BUT that was not the worst part. I went for a wee a few hours later and my urine was blood red!! I thought I was dying and bleeding to death (yeah yeah over dramatic I know) but it was scary!

I have gotten over my fear of the red root veggie and I quite enjoy it cooked as the cooking process gets rid of the tangy taste and all you are left with is a potato-ey red root vegetable.This recipe is so easy and there are many recipes online so you can make it with whatever you have at home.
