Creative Yummy Dips that made me fall in LOVE with PLANTS

The reason why so many of us do not think highly of vegetables is because no one really showed us what to do with them. Pardon my observations… but tired salad leaves sprinkled with a chemical waist for a dressing OR brutally chopped carrots OR, worse - severely overcooked greens are sad -sad -sad. No one will ever like plants that are served with no imagination…… Far more exciting is all those fancy-shmancy beautifully wrapped and well-presented dead substances sold to us as food. Right? Right… unless you want to get more out of your food then just looks and taste.

Imagination is everything.

Here are a few ideas for those of You who are no longer buying into the external programming and discovering their own ways to enjoy food - HEALING, NURTURING, EMPOWERING ways.

Plant Dip #1 - LIFE BEET
