This salad by Sarah Britton of My New Roots includes an absolute rainbow of fresh vegetables featuring Chioggia beets, purple onion and fresh herbs with sprouted sunflower seeds and wild rice. The dressing is a stripped down but ultra yummy combination of cold pressed olive oil, acv, raw honey or maple syrup, and minced ginger. The wild rice adds a great chewy texture and additional b-vitamins, protein, iron, calcium, potassium and zinc and also makes the salad much more hearty. Wild rice is actually not a grain at all but a seed and is gluten free. Enjoy this salad for dinner tonight!
Dehydrated veggie herb crackers stacked with macadamia chevre and softened, olive oil, sea salt and lemon infused asparagus. Serve with a side salad of fresh arugula, cherry tomatoes, sprouts and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette. Who says raw food is boring?
What do you get when you combine the juices of fresh pineapple, beet, carrot, and strawberry? You get an ultra delicious and body-adoring love potion of course! Your ingredients can be run through a juicer, or you can use a blender with water as needed, straining everything through a nut milk bag at the end to remove the fiber. Cheers!

This gorgeous and wholesale recipe was adapted by Golubka from a recipe found in The Sprouted Kitchen by Sara Forte. Instead of preparing the quinoa traditionally using heat, Golubka chose to sprout the quinoa and leave it in its raw state. The vibrant green of the collards contrasts perfectly with the ruby hue of fresh beets and vibrant orange of carrots. Don't forget to include thick slices of avocado, fresh sprouts, and a generous spread of miso-carrot sauce.

Good ol' Beets. So readily available and oh so good for you! They are loaded with vitamins and minerals and help both build the blood and detoxify it! Enjoy this nutrient packed salad by Lisa Pitman of Vegan Culinary Crusade. It combines flavors that you will find very familiar if you've ever had traditional borscht soup. In this recipe you will enjoy celery root, carrot, green onions, beets (of course) and a creamy dressing made from soaked raw cashews, lemon, pepper and dried dill.
Sarah Britton was a bit skeptical to give a traditionally cooked recipe a raw makeover, but we're glad she decided to take the plunge because the outcome is absolutely delicious! Rich, creamy pine nut "cheese" in between thinly sliced light, crispy beet root. Finish the recipe off with a light drizzle of pesto oil, and serve them atop a bed of fresh micro greens or arugula. The meal is complete! You can use any variety of beets for this recipe, including striped, red, or yellow. Beets are highly detoxifying and are a great addition to your daily diet for gentle liver support.
Beets and beet greens have amazing liver cleansing abilities and these days it's a good idea to give the liver a little extra support and love. We recommended making and enjoying this juice at least a few times per week. Beyond being extremely detoxifying it is also super hydrating and delicious. The lemon, ginger, cucumber and apple help balance out the root vegetables and create a very well rounded flavor.
Chef Marlie educates us about the benefits of beets:
"Nutritional powerhouses, beets are an excellent source of antioxidants, help to regulate digestion, cleanse the liver and detoxify our cells. The leaves are also edible, and are chocked full of beta-carotene. What better way to alkalize the bod than with beets?"
Salad may seem like a boring option for a meal, but we assure you it doesn't have to be. The magic is all in the combination of flavors, and of course in the dressing. A great dressing can transform a salad from drab to fab. We love this easy recipe, and the dressing has the perfect combination of creaminess from tahini, acid and tart from the lemon, as well as added sweetness from orange, coconut water and dates. And don't forget that spicy kick from ginger! It comes out thick, more like a sauce, which will make your salad a bit more filling and satisfying.
This recipe is great as an appetizer served at small get togethers or they'll even go well as a snack. For this recipe you can use whatever seeds or nuts you like or swap the beetroots for parsnip, carrot or any other veggie. This particular time the crust happens to be raw and portion sized but you can choose to bake it in the oven in a regular pie pan if you wish.
Karolina claims she "Must have her Granola" on her blog http://loveraw.blogspot.com, she goes and and states that Granola is great, because you can throw together pretty much what you have in the kitchen and use the granola to snack on, form them into bars, eat them with almond milk or as a topping on a cake. You can keep some in your purse for those moments when you need to fuel yourself when you're out. Look in your cupboards, jars and drawers. And bring your biggest bowl and start to create your own mix!!
Beets and lemons are powerful liver cleansers. The natural sodium in the celery will help flush out debris as well. Apples have malic acid which help to soften stones and open your bile ducts. For best results, drink 1 pint of juice per day.
