Mint and Dill Beets


TAGGED : SUGAR DETOX RECIPE

Over my summer sugar detox, I removed beets from my diet due to their high level of sugar. Since the winter months in the Northeast have a change of fruits and vegetables, I incorporated beets back into my meals. Here is a simple dish that brings together color and flavor to the dinner table. Recipe compliments of Audrey Snyder.
