Soup in a coffee mug, why not? :)

How my love for beets began:

I know this may be hard to believe, but I have just this year discovered that I LOVE beets. I had never tried them before! Crazy huh?! For NYE this year, my fiancé Ryan & I took a little birthday//NYE trip to Palm Springs and stayed in this fun little hotel, we were in walking distance to this amazing little joint. This is where it all happened. I ordered a beet salad, because it was the only thing on the menu with avocados in it and I was craving them, as usual. I devoured the plate in about 3 minutes (not healthy, I know! ☹). At that moment, my love for beets was born. These are my two FAVORITE beet recipes, so if you're new to beets, then these will be easy for you to tackle! 

 Beet Borscht Recipe
