Yoga+Music365 (day26) – Cardinology by Ryan Adams and the Cardinals – -Recipe Edition!

  Each Tuesday I’ll share an easy, nutritious recipe so you can join me in the home-cooked self-care.

Today’s recipe was found on WordPress at Healthy Habits Coach. Check out her blog for more healthy recipes and tips.

 I love beets and am always looking for ways to get more vegetables in my body. To be honest, I like buying them more than making them. This salad was easy and delicious. The easy is really important because I hate making salads.

Even if you don’t like beets, you should try it. It doesn’t taste very “beet-y” – it’s cool, crisp, crunchy,  a bit sweet, a bit tart and it’s really pretty. I wish I had a picture, but I never remember to take photos of my food.

Beet and Grapefruit Salad (for 2)
½ beet, grated (RAW – I kept the skin on)
1 pink grapefruit, peeled and diced {I used blood oranges instead}
1 stock of celery, diced
¼ cup red onion, diced {I omitted – we didn’t have any}
Balsamic Vinaigrette to moisten
Slivered roasted almonds to sprinkle on top

Mix and enjoy.

Please let me know if you made the recipe and what you think. Also tell me what you like and want to hear more about.

    • @kathy – i made it with a whole beet too. once i got started grating, i figured i’d just keep going. plus then i had some left overs.

      slivered kale? i’m all over it. i’m always trying to figure out how to get more green leafies in my mouth. thanks for the tip and the recipes!

  1. i love raw beet salad. the addition of blood oranges sounds perfect.
