On my recent trip to my naturopath, I was feeling very sluggish, run down and tired and after some blood tests and looking at my current diet, it came about that I was low in zinc and iron. She recommended me to up my intake in beetroots to my dismay since they are quite high in both things that I was lacking in. As we do, I resorted to google to find out some creative ways I could ingest beetroot rather than the traditional roasting them in the oven route or having them raw in a salad. The end result was a bliss ball recipe!
They even turned out to look a little ‘Chris-masy’. These are so easy to whip up in just 15 minutes and the taste of beetroot is quite subtle! I added the protein powder to make a quick and easy go to before or after a workout also. Pop them in your handbag and off you go!

Recipe by Ashleigh Jade
TWOSIX yoga teacher Ashleigh was originally attracted to yoga just four years ago as a way to soothe a stressed mind through a mental and physical practice whilst working in a corporate environment for an international fashion retailer.
Ashleigh decided to dive deeper into the yoga realm by completing her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Power Living Australia in 2015 and further studies later that year in Meditation and Reiki. Through her teaching, she realised that it was the deep connection with people that she missed and made the decision to leave the corporate world to devote her time to the yoga world.
She decided to blog to unleash her creative juices and to be able to share the things she loves doing through living a healthier and more positive lifestyle.
