Cleansing Beet Salad & Upcoming Giveaway

Good morning my lovelies! I hope you are all having a great week.

Today is the last day of my cleanse so I thought I would share a recipe I made earlier in the week before I go back to sharing recipes that are a little more fun ;p

Cleansing Beet Salad for 2

1 large carrot, peeled & shredded (I just used my peeler)

1 large beet, peeled & shredded (I sliced it thinly using my mandoline and then cut it into matchsticks)

1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced (I used some of the leaves as garnish)

4 cups of mixed greens

1 large handful of arugula

squeeze the juice of half of a lemon on top, use a bit of salt & pepper to taste & sprinkle on some pumpkin seeds

Mix it all together. I topped mine with sprouts. I didn’t add any oil, but feel free to add some – flax oil would be a nice addition. Chopped avocado would be tasty too.

I love how easy this salad is to make. It came together quite quickly. I just peeked in the fridge, started taking things out and before I knew it, my salad was ready. This also transports nicely as I had half of the salad one day and the other half the next day while on the go (it was actually better the second day).

In other news, I have an exciting post coming up next week (I think maybe Monday?). I am doing a review of a product I am in LOVE with and they sent me some of it to review. Since I’ve already tried most of it several times, I thought it would be nice to share some with you so I’ve decided a couple of my lucky readers will be sent some of said product. But you have to wait to find out what it is =) I highly recommend you come back to find out though, as it is pure awesome!!! Stay tuned.

One more quick thing, I’ll be posting tomorrow. I don’t normally post Saturdays, but felt like this needed to be done. It won’t be a recipe or anything fun, I post a lot thinking of my readers and what they would like to see. This post will be for me.

Have a super fantastic weekend! I hope you all have good weather and enjoy some sunshine =)

I’ve shared this on Gluten Free Fridays, Healthy Vegan Fridays & Raw Food Thursdays

  1. Yes, yes, PLEASE! I just shredded a bunch of beets for a kale salad. I love how you combined beets with arugula and fennel. What flavor! I’m going to highlight this at Raw Foods Thursdays this week. Thanks so much for linking up! Congrats for completing your cleanse!

    Have a great rest of your week!

    1. Oh wow! Thank you so much Heather, this just totally made my day =)
      I’m not a fan of beets, but enjoy them shredded in salads (I think maybe I just like them raw and not cooked).
      I’m also not a fan of arugula haha, but it worked really nicely with the fennel.
      Thank you!!!
