Visually appealing meals bring us more satisfaction and may even prevent us from overeating. Even the most humble ingredients will shine in a layered dish, such as this Blooming Lava Salad.
Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Beetroot
An eye-catching appetizer for a potluck or just for snacking. Easy way to eat beets, which are especially good for cleansing at this time of the year.
The carrots and beets will wake up your taste buds in the morning, while the garlic and ginger will ensure you will be well protected from whatever “bug” happens to be floating around this time of year.
Fermented veggies promote good digestion and healthy gut flora, and even make some nutrients more bioavailable. Your colon, heart, liver and skin will love the beets and carrots whose texture and edibility has been boosted by the fermentation process, with the taste transformed from sweet to savory.
This rejuvenating and invigorating juice I drink at the start of most days. It’s very simple, quick to make and I never get tied of it.
Tired of traditional salads? This recipe puts a whole new spin on the salad theme. The idea for this festive layered salad comes from Russian cuisine.
Traditional Russian salad recipes often include herring, boiled potatoes and mayonnaise. But this healthy variation is chock full of raw goodness. Instead of cooking vegetables, use them in their raw state. Let mushrooms be the substitute for herring and have the avocados stand in for potatoes—more tastily, too! No mayo, either—instead, a nut-based dressing.
A decided improvement in taste and nutrition. A real novelty, too. Your party guests will never have seen or tasted this one! Guaranteed to impress.
A wrinkle – smoothing, alkalizing, mostly green morning juice.
The taste of papaya merges with the taste of orange and beet root to pack an incredible amount of enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants into this powerful juice.
Aside from juicing, one of my favorite ways to use fresh beets is this classic Russian Borsch recipe (modified to be raw of course) from Quantum Eating.
