Beetroot & Spinach Porridge

Finally, went to buy beetroot for Xavier to try as I heard that it's pretty nutritious.

It is also called beet, the beetroot is a firm, clean globe shaped vegetable with no soft wet areas.

If still attached, it should have fresh, clean young leaves. The beetroot is characterised by dark purple skin and a distinctive purple flesh.

Containing the powerful antioxidant betacyanin, which gives beetroot its deep red hue, this vegetable purifies the blood and has anti-carcinogenic properties.

It boosts the body’s natural defenses in the liver, regenerating immune cells. Also contains silica, vital for healthy skin, fingernails, ligaments, tendons and bones.

Beetroot contains sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, iodine, iron, copper, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C. Each capsule provides approximately 1-2mg of elemental

I added in some spinach & minced pork into the porridge as well.

And Xav loves it to see and taste something new !
