Beets are a true super-food. They aid the body in detoxification of fat from the liver, are an anti-inflammatory vegetable and even help improve blood pressure. In this salad they are used raw and are definitely the star of the dish. Complemented by savory celery (high in antioxidants), a bit of a kick from red onion (helps control blood sugar), the tanginess of limes (improved digestion) and a dash of olive oil (I mean, olive oil is gold) this is as tasty and as healthy as it gets.Read More

I am not a fan of “hiding” vegetables and making them disappear into the food. I prefer to be upfront with my children so they know exactly what they are eating, and why it is good for them. However I made an exception in this dish, since the grated carrot adds a vibrant color and along with the peas gives the dish a yummy mild sweetness.
I promise, they will eat it all!Read More
