Hello LSN Community,

Going with the theme of the month, I thought this would be a great time to share this recipe. I’ve been seeing some inspiring posts on Instagram and so many people are raving about beets these days. I feel like I’m seeing them everywhere. I just adore this deeply-hued root vegetable. Whether in a juice, salad, or you know…hummus, you can’t go wrong.

This pretty pink dip will give your plate some color while giving your taste buds a satisfying sweet spin on the traditional Mediterranean spread. Use it at home for a snack or take it to a party to share. It’s actually quite impressive to serve to guests, especially this time of year. It’s a really great way to enjoy Valentine’s Day, without all the candy & chocolate. But if you are in the mood for something sweet, check out this healthy sweet treat.
