Friday, March 20, 2020

If you read this blog, or follow me on social media you know that my mom is an incredible cook and baker. She is also one of those people who makes most of everything without a recipe - which is only frustrating for me because while I can cook and bake I need a recipe for everything. 
She makes this beet and lemon concentrate juice mix that you mix with water for a delicious and healthy juice. There is ton health benefits in beets and lemon. Like most other plant-based foods, beets are high in nutrients yet low in calories. Their antioxidants also offer additional benefits, such as reduced risk of cellular damage, plus, beets are among the group of vegetables and fruits that may help reduce your risk for chronic illnesses. 
This is also gonna be first recipe I m going to do in both English and Bosnian.
