Citrus and Raw Beet Salad Recipe

Citrus and Raw Beet Salad Recipe
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

This citrus and raw beet salad recipe is perfect for those on a raw diet, or for those wanting to incorporate fresh, raw veggies into your diet. If you usually cook your beets, try them raw. The crunch and moisture is divine!

They are, however, difficult to digest and we rarely chew them properly. Grating, and then marinating, them makes them much easier to digest. Orange and ginger liven up the vegetables and make for a really delicious raw meal.

I’ll also show you in this video a bit of how my mind works when I cook, since I very seldom actually use recipes – even my own! I think of recipes as ideas, starting points, or general outlines for a meal, and I definitely encourage you to experiment with all of my recipes to make them work for you and your tastes.
