Valentines is approaching. That means that you can expect pink food or chocolate treats from The Hungry Herbivores blog. Holidays are such a great opportunity to try out exciting recipes and forget about whatever gluttony means. We recommend you feed your loved one tonnes of amazing food and watch them get fat. Alternatively, if you’re single this vday and your friends are having their cheesy dates, you go ahead and make yourself some delicious food to remind yourself you love yourself very much.
First pink recipe is here. Beet & Dill linguine! This is a super simple recipe you can create for a romantic themed dinner, or just a regular meal to nourish your tummies. The recipe is low-fat and filled with healthy, flavoursome ingredients. The linguine absorbs the vibrant pink colours beautifully, making it the perfect ribbon of wheat to re-enact Lady & the Tramp with. Again, if you’re single, use your dog or other animal, i’m sure that would be more entertaining anyway.
Beetroot is amazing for you and your body. It is packed with iron, protein, potassium, antioxidants as well as a high concentration of nitrate, meaning it reduces blood pressure, chances of heart attacks and stroke. All round top vegetable.
