Carrot Beet Salad

Earthy and vibrant, this simple salad is a favourite. It’s so good for you, too: one serving has 110% of the daily value for vitamin A, which promotes skin, lung and eye health. Plus, beets are excellent for liver detoxification.

Tip: If you get beet juice on your hands, rub with lemon juice to remove the purple tint.
Beeturia = Urine or stool that turns red or pink after eating beets. Don’t panic—this is normal!
