“Clean eating” has evolved into such a buzz phrase, it’s easy to forget the simple concept it represents. Choosing whole, unrefined, natural foods is an easy way to “eat clean” — and those foods tend to be naturally low in fats, sugars, and sodium. This sandwich simultaneously illustrates that lifestyle and serves as a oh-so-yummy lunch.
Beet, Apple, Carrot, and Ginger Slaw
Gloopy, mayo-based cole slaw’s distant cousin, this vibrant shredded veggie blend is packed with antioxidants, flavor, and nutrients galore. Beets’ natural anti-inflammatory powers are exponentially boosted by ginger’s own major health benefits. Everything about this dish is soul-warming and immunity-building, making it the perfect winter side dish.
Beet, Berry, and Chia Seed Smoothie
This smoothie’s gorgeous hue isn’t the only reason you’ll want to pour some more. Blueberries live up to their powerhouse antioxidant reputation, blending beautifully with the creamy texture of beets swirled into sweet coconut milk and tangy cider. The result is a thick, shake-like beverage without the burden of a milkshake’s sugar and fat. Cheers!
A healthy lifestyle blog post wouldn’t be completely without a recipe for a fabulous salad. This one is extra-special because of the gorgeous lemon-parsley dressing: thick enough to glaze each ingredient without muting the fresh flavors with a heavy coat of oil. With healthy, brain-power boosting fats from avocado and walnuts, this rainbow-in-a-bowl will brighten your lunch and help you surpass the dreaded 2pm slump.
