Since the beginning of July, I have been living in St Petersburg, Russia. After the move, I have been forced to make some change in my sustainable and natural living. Not only did I not have the possibility to bring any of my essential oils and other raw material, things like organic food and recycling seem to be completely unknown in this country. Nonetheless, I have tried to take the most out of the situation, and try to look at what I can do in Russia instead of what I can’t do. And there’s a few things that they do better than many, maybe even any, other country. Such as honey. And vodka. I’ll hopefully get back to those later, but for now I wanted to share a quick tip with another type of food that the russians love: beetroot.
