Beetroot salad with pistache and blueberries – whole30 approved!

Blueberry and beetroot salad with pistachio |

How beautiful does this look? I love beetroots; they kind of look a little bit like jewels in this salad especially combined with the blue berries… Yes, I’m still on my whole30 and yes this salad is of course whole30 approved and really really delicious.  I’ve been eating lots of beetroot lately but apparently there are beetroot lovers and beetroot haters. Clearly I’m in the love-camp!


I just noticed something really annoying when I checked my stats. I looked at some of my most popular posts and for some reason they tend to be older post. But that is maybe logical as posts get more exposure as time passes, but…. with all the talk of how important seo is, these posts all had no seo to speak of or Yoast tells me they are in the bad or ‘ok’ category… So I am working on getting those little green lights on when it comes to seo but now I find out that most of my popular posts suck in the seo department. What does that mean? I have no clue… Consider it a useless Sunday rant..

How’s the weather on your side of the ocean? Here it is not so good today. Cloudy with rain storms from time to time, mingled with the occasional sunshine. We had a really good week but today it seems that warm weather is officially over. Might be back next week who knows… Anyway, as you can tell: nothing important to say so I’m giving you this delicious recipe instead!
