Optimized for Great Health and Weight
This is a salad that is as rich in nutrients as it is colorful. Only whole natural plant ingredients are used to make sure you get all the nutrition in the way nature intended.
It is rich in root vegetables that contain all the essential amino acids (proteins) and fats as well as vitamins A, C, manganese, potassium, iron… Also super-rich in antioxidants that reduce free radicals and detoxify the body.
Beets are also known to improve athletic performance. Radishes are cruciferous vegetables that contains the powerful immune system boosting and cancer-fighting micronutrient sulforaphane.
Garlic is known in many cultures as a superfood and for a good reason. It is super rich in antioxidants and other immune boosters – organosulfur compounds.
Lemons, although with an acidic taste, are great alkalizers and rich in vitamin C, folate, flavonoids, potassium and super healthy micronutrients called limonins.
We also added hemp and flax seeds to provide a healthy dose of essential fats, especially that important Omega-3s that reduce inflammation, protect the brain and your arteries. The seeds are also rich in lignans that are powerful anticancer agents.
Making the salad
This salad is quite easy to make, especially if you have an electric shredder. Simply peel the beet, Kohlrabi, red radish and carrots and put them into the shredder.
For the dressing, in a small bowl juice the lemon, add the pressed garlic and some flax seed oil or ground flax seeds. We prefer to use ground flax since it is super rich in lignans. Since the ground flax seeds absorb water quickly, you might want to add some water.
Mix it all together and enjoy!
