As we head into summer beetroot becomes an Aussie favourite. Were you aware that Australians are the highest consumers of beetroot? Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C and have been shown to provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification support.
I am all about quick, simple nutritious recipes, as cooking is not my favourite thing to do in the world. But I have to feed and nourish my body and of course feed my family.
Beetroot Salad: this is Delicious and full of antioxidants and vitality
You will need:
I beet root: 1 Carrot, 1/2 bunch parsley, 1 tomato, 1/2 capsicum, pine nuts or walnuts, lemon and olive oil.
Grate a fresh organic raw beetroot, (yes that’s right Raw) The organic ones have so much more flavour and don’t taste like dirt.!
Grate the carrot,
Then chop the tomato, parsley, capsicum, and mix all together.
Add nuts (either pine nuts or walnuts) squeeze lemon juice and add olive oil.
If you want let it sit for a little while and the olive oil will soften the carrot and beetroot.
For a extra bit of flavour you can add Mint. All the ingredients are optional and you can change or leave out what you don’t like or have a reaction to.
Delicious and nutritious. Enjoy Love Monica.
