Hi from Bali Luvs! Iโ€™m finally ready to launch my new project Iโ€™ve been working on @thebohobeet and want you to be the first to check it out. As some of you know by now, Iโ€™ve left everything behind in Los Angeles to start a new chapter of my life. What only a few of you know is how I came to that decision, why Iโ€™m on the run, and whatโ€™s up next for me. โ˜€๏ธ My new blog, www.thebohobeet.com, will give you a piece of the story. If youโ€™d like to follow my adventures, please sign up for my newsletter so you know when I post, and follow me on Instagram @thebohobeet (Iโ€™ll be moving my stories and most of my posts from @cookingforluv to that account in the coming month). Your support means the world, and by following along there we can stay connected no matter where we live. โœˆ๏ธ I love you all and would love for you to join along on my journey - your continued support means the world to me!!! ๐Ÿ’—

So if you watch my Instastories, you know I got a hold of a 12" long beet a while back and didn't know what fun thing I should do with it...so I asked y'all! I got some really creative ideas thrown at me, but this one from @myveganplate was the winner...I roasted the sucker whole then microplaned it lengthwise to create flat sheets of "pasta", then built it into a meyer lemon, goat cheese, and ricotta lasagna (and then proceeded to eat the entire thing in 10 minutes flat โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿท)

One of my favorite memories as a kid was walking up the driveway to our log cabin in the woods of Michigan eating blackberries straight off the bushes that lined the path. Eons later still every chance I get I shove blackberries in my mouth, but for some bizarre reason I've never cooked them...but today I threw em in a galette with blueberries and topped it with a coconut granola crumble and think I may have died and ascended to blackberry heaven ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‡โค๏ธ
