Video: Raw Beet Citrus Salad

This is a refreshing dish that omits the leaves for an earthier, more filling side salad. The beet taste is cut by the citrus from the orange and lemon and lifted by fragrant mint leaves. I love the chew in this recipe and afterwards, it leaves me feeling fuller for longer and not looking for much more to fill a hunger or craving void. My senses are satisfied.

Beets pack the glowpower and here’s why:

Beets: contain folic acid necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells, which benefits pregnant women and those undergoing physical healing, guard against colon cancer, protect against heart disease, are high in sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and phosphorous, are available all year round, contain cancer-fighting pigment betacynin, cleanse the blood, strengthen the gall bladder and liver, and can be used to treat acne.
