I'm one of those people that reads "Click Here for 10 Foods You Must Eat to Live to be 105!" and clicks. I just have to do it. I've heard these things referred to as "chick bait." Whatever, call me caught hook, line & sinker, but who doesn't want to live to be 105?
So, in the spirit of post-Halloween detox, I read (on the internet, of course) about the best foods for natural detox. Or, was it the top 5 cancer fighting foods? Whatever it was, when I went to go back and read the article again, I couldn't find it, naturally. So, I've been walking around with these magically healthy foods bouncing around my head. Today, I decided to get them out of my head and onto a plate. I remember that beets, blueberries, lemons and pomegranate are super foods that fight disease and make you feel and look your best. I decided to throw them all together into this gorgeous salad because lets face it, I'd love to naturally detox, ward off cancer and live to 105! Who doesn't?
Here's what you'll need:
- 3-4 medium sized beets, stems trimmed and scrubbed.
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 Lemon, juiced
- Feta cheese crumbles, 1/4 cup
- Parsley leaves, 1/4 cup
- 1/2 Pomegranate, seeds
Here's what you'll do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees while you scrub and prepare your beets. Place scrubbed, whole beets in a foil packet and on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven until fork tender, about 60 minutes. Let cool. Scrub skins off. They should come off easily with a paper towel.
2. Cut beets into cubes. Combine cubed beats with blueberries, parsley, lemon and salt. Tumble the feta over the salad. Garnish with pomegranate seeds.
Enjoy Super Health!
