Dips are always a winner when you have guests around, though too often we tend to get a little tired of the usual suspects. Roasted Beetroot & Macadamia Nut Dip is a simple to make alternative, that is super cheap and takes little time to make. It is pack full of luscious beetroot flavour and has a crunch and creaminess from the macadamia nuts.

Let’s Make a Difference

Every day we have the opportunity to make hundreds of choices. We are so fortunate to live in a time where information is so easily accessible and we have the opportunity and freedom to make choices that we feel are the best for us and our families.

I encourage you to continue educating yourself and others about the benefits of living a plant-based lifestyle. Cook a plant-based meal, opt-out of products like leather, watch a documentary with a family member or friend. It’s easy to feel like the choices we make are small, but when we make these choices together, we can make a big difference!
