Carrot and Beet Salad with Spicy Mustard Dressing

It’s January 5th. Do you know where your New Year’s resolution is? You know, that pesky one named “Eat Healthier”?

This salad is raw, vegan, healthy, inexpensive and simple. There’s no excuse for not making this! Make a big, huge, monstrously large batch on Sunday and you will have lunch already made for the week. Toss in some orange slices or blueberries for excitement. Nix the walnuts and opt for almonds instead. Throw in some quinoa or wild rice. 

Just please leave the beets in.

Poor beets. So under-appreciated. So beautiful, yet so misunderstood. It’s time to let this ruby-red root veggie shine in all its detoxifying, antioxidant, nutrient-rich glory. 

Here’s to eating healthier!

    Oh yeah, She ain’t lyin! Beets really are overlooked a lot. My family gets so tired of Iceberg lettuce, and Kale was the perfect remedy. This salad is a bowl of sunshine.
