Carrot Beet Salad (The Plan)

THIS SIMPLE RECIPE FOR CARROT BEET SALAD IS A STANDARD IN NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE AND REPUTED TO BE STRONGLY ANTI-CANCER

From the Vitality Food Feature ‘A Tale of Two Cookbooks‘.

I’ve been eating a carrot beet salad since my early teens when I first started working at a hippie health food restaurant. The raw vegetables are pretty easy to digest and chock-full of lovely enzymes. This simple recipe, a standard in naturopathic medicine, aids liver cleansing and is reputed to be strongly anti-cancer. Adding lemon or lime juice and extra virgin olive oil further helps liver and gallbladder cleansing. (Makes 4 to 6 servings)

Ingredients

  • 4 large carrots, coarsely grated
  • 1 beet, peeled and coarsely grated
  • Lime Agave Vinaigrette (see below) or lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil, to taste

1) Put all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine.

2) Serve immediately.
