This raw winter salad makes me feel like summer. Beets and carrots are definitely two of my favorite vegetables and not just for taste reasons. Beets belong to the chenopod family. They're extremely high in antioxidants (specifically vitamin C and manganese), anti-inflammatory molecules and they're also known to trigger the Phase 2 cellular detoxification process. That being said, beet fiber and carrot fiber are shown to particularly provide special health benefits to our digestive tract and cardiovascular system. If you're experiencing constipation, a daily serving of beets will make you feel like you want to put a bikini. It can be difficult to imagine how the hardy, crunchy, and often rough-looking exterior of beets and carrots can be transformed into something sweet and light. This salad transcends that perspective, delighting your taste buds and your waistline.
