Backed up, blocked or bloated, this salad is for you!

There’s lots of sayings for being constipated.

I’m backed up, blocked, I haven’t made a deposit at the porcelain bank, I feel bloated, I must be dehydrated, I’ve eaten too much crap, I haven’t taken a crap, I need to drop the kids off at the pool, I think I need to eat more fibre, OMG… my stomach 😩

What ever it is, we’ve all felt like we need to give our tummies some help in doing their job (love a pun).

Beetroots offer so many health benefits including being high in antioxidants, blood cleansing, help to reduce blood pressure, help with liver function, and get those bowels moving!

Beetroot salad served with risotto, chicken & steamed broccoli.

mint leaves
