Steak with a sauce of red beet

Just beet it.

Throughout the entire year, you can find red beets in the supermarket. Did you know that red beets are really healthy? They help reduce high blood pressure, work anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and fight damage to your cognitive function. Interesting right? This means, I have no other choice than to use red beets in one of my recipes. Eventually, I decided to make a sauce out of red beets. Because a red beet sauce made out of only red beets is quite plain, I added some more ingredients to the mix. That way the sauce will have even more flavour.

The recipe.

This dish is actually a twist on a traditional Belgian dish called steak with fries. A delicious steak, served with fries, bacon and a sauce of red beet and apple. You can choose to pour the sauce over your meat or just use it as a dip for your fries! Both are equally good! Finally, you can find the recipe for this dish if you scroll down a bit. Now, you can get cooking! Good luck!

Toast to the fourth power

A toast to a great lunch!

Lunch inspiration is one of my biggest struggles. I often don’t know what to eat for lunch. That means that I usually leave for work with no lunch. Ofcourse I have to eat at noon! Lucky for me there is a supermarket next to the company where I work. Well, I am not sure I’d call that lucky anymore. That is probably the reason I am too lazy to pack myself a lunch at home. I just go to the supermarket and get myself a prepared meal, salad or wrap. This is quite the cost. Making my lunch at home would save me a lot of money. So, I decided it was about time I would tackle this situation and came up with some easy and delicious lunch options!
