 How grateful I am to enjoy God’s bounty with you! 


Dear Lovers,

            Today, you are in store for a refreshing beet salad.  Did you know beets are nature’s Viagra?  One of the first uses of beets was used by the ancient Romans, who used them medicinally as an aphrodisiac.  Science backs this up.  Beets contain high amounts of boron, which is directly related to the production of human sex hormones.  Beets are also a wonderful tonic for the liver, works as a blood purifier, and can prevent various forms of cancer.  Beets, too, are a high source of energy that increases sexual vitality.  You’ll have to agree, sweet beets are a delightful treat in more ways than one!


Beet Salad with arugula and walnuts

1 pound red beets, washed, rinsed, peeled and cut into chunks
3 cups water, enough to cover the beets
1 pinch sea salt
3 cups arugula
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup mint, chopped
1 cup walnuts, chopped


In a quart pan add beet chunks and water over a medium heat.  Add pinch of sea salt.  Cook 45 minutes, or until beet chunks are tender.  Arrange arugula into a bed onto a plate.  Take out the beet chunks and place into a bowl.  Add the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and the chopped mint to the bowl.  Toss till the mixture coats the ingredients.  Place the ingredients on top of the arugula.  Add the walnuts.   Serve warm.
