Everyone loves dip 🙂 They are great served with Doritos, salty crackers or vegetable cutlets, or with salad. I am a huge fan of beetroot and its beautifully rich-colored root vegetable is full of goodness. I love to add beetroot in many ways, but eating it raw is the one I love the most.
Including beets in your kid’s diet is great for their health. Beetroot is a root vegetable also known as red beet, table beet, garden beet, or just beet. Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.
Bursting with flavor and fragrance, mint is a great flavor booster. It adds bright, fresh notes to both sweet and savory dishes. Lemon juice is my favorite flavor booster. If a dish tastes a little dull, the addition of some freshly squeezed lemon juice will often boost the flavor. To retain the fresh flavor, it is best to add the lemon juice at the last moment. Aside from adding a boost of acidity the lemon juice often means that the dish will require less salt and retains color as well.
