Okay, I won’t lie. I’ve been on a bit of an eating spree the last few weeks, with little time to make up for it via working out. I’ve also recently gotten involved in a fervent love affair – with beets. Yes. Beets. They are DELICIOUS.
So, in an effort to turn my diet around, I threw together some chopped roasted beets, avocado, tomatoes, and fresh basil. After cracking open a whole burrata over the salad, I drizzled a wee bit of whatever cheap balsamic vinegar we had in the house, some olive oil, and a few sprinkles of dried herbs over top.
The burrata I used was from Trader Joe’s, purchased mostly out of convenience as I was too lazy to make another trip to a store that would have a better cheese selection. The cheese ended up being a little too salty and overall extremely mediocre.
[Side note] Someone recently asked me if burrata was a type of moldy cheese (i.e., bleu, gorgonzola, etc.). Burrata is a type of mozzarella… probably the best kind!
Not bad for a quick dinner, but next time I will definitely go to Whole Foods to get some legit Burrata, along with perhaps an aged balsamic vinegar.
Here’s to getting back on the grind for healthier eating!
