beet carrot salad // featured in BBG!

beet carrot salad kaleinit

 

big news, guys!

you may have heard, 3 of my recipes are now featured in The Skinny Confidential’s Bombshell Body Guide as of last week and I still in awe.

when Lauryn Everts offered to include my recipes in the guide,  I was pumped. she’s my blogger idol. then I struggled to keep it a secret until it was announced on social media.

I also got a chance to test out the Bombshell Body Guide (BBG) and hear all my thoughts on it in this post.

two of the three recipes were already on my blog- find the cashew cream alfredo here, & the lentil lettuce wraps here.

but I had to include the third recipe. it’s raw, it’s vegan, gluten free, and full of only the cleanest ingredients possible. it also features detoxifying beets, skin perfecting carrot, and bloat soothing mint and ginger.

I’d consider that a win.

from extensive stalking of TSC blog, I knew that Lauryn appreciated mint, citrus fruits, and apple cider vinegar to feel her best. how did I know?? well, even a much less invested reader would quickly discover this because she discusses her daily detox drink a lot.

this recipe is ready in under 10 minutes. and it’s beautiful! who else agrees that eating gorgeous food makes us feel amazing both inside and out?? not to sound like a nutritious food nerd, but it still am amazed by the beauty that mother nature provides in the form of fruits and veggies.

just look at these colors….


// what you need //

-salad-

2 cup carrot, peeled to make ribbons

1 cup shredded raw beets.

-dressing-

1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon of ground ginger

pinch of sea salt

1-2 tablespoons of chopped mint to garnish.

// how to make //

peel and shred carrot and beets.

whisk together dressing ingredients.

in a medium bowl, pour dressing over carrots and beets. toss gently to coat and combine.

garnish with orange wedges, and chopped mint.

optional: top with crushed hazelnut or pistachio, or serve over greens or quinoa.


isn’t that simple? I’m curious where else I could use this sweet gingery dressing. 

and please, if you haven’t already, run don’t walk your computer mouse quickly to check out Lauryn’s blog.
