My childhood beet salad.

My childhood beet salad will be your rescue if you are suffering from the constipation. As I am typing this blog my memories take me back to my childhood. My mom used to make this beet salad as a side dish when she was making stroganoff or cutlets accompanied by mashed potatoes or buckwheat. But you can really eat it with any dish you wish. It goes well with vegetarian dishes, chicken, meet, fish, and it’s addictive by itself.

My childhood beet salad requires few ingredients, inexpensive to make, delicious, and is based on the ingredients that support detoxification. Since we’ve been on the lockdown, I’ve been thinking of people who have been eating more refined carbs and sugars and now as a results are suffering from constipation, perhaps skin problems such as breakouts, acne, inflammation and irritation. So this salad will help to bring you a relieve. Healthy bowel movement should be at least once a day, ideally up to 3 times a day. Eat my childhood beet salad and Boom, in 24 hours you will feel the magic happening:)
