Beet the Bulge!

Posted on 11 Nov 2012 by maisha (posted in: blogs)

Chocolate & beets, it's a combination not so uncommon in the culinary world. A combination I had to try, of course! I wasn't really feeling a chocolate beet cake or such, but this red velvet pancake recipe on Skinny Weighs sounded just right.

Another delicious breakfast recipe to start your day right and help you beet the bulge ;-)
