Have you treated yourself kindly this heart-opening month of love? Yes, your family and friends deserve all the hugs, kisses and sweets because they matter so, but don’t forget the number one love since day one, YOU. Treating yourself with love and kindness doesn’t only mean desserts, facials, massages and anything else super extra but rather, simply caring about what you do to your body, mind and spirit throughout the day. Are you continuing to show up for yourself and treat yourself with gentle compassion?
Try it today. Go to your favorite workout, drink a ton of water, go on a walk, and make something delicious, satisfying and loaded with nutrients. I love tossing a delicious superfood salad especially one filled with color and my favorite veggies.
Beets are a great veggie to incorporate into your salads because they have this subtle earthiness, satisfying crunch and full of so much color. Golden beets are a bit sweeter and softer than traditional red beets - making them so easy to work with in the kitchen. Beets are a great source of fiber, potassium, iron and folic acid. Golden beets also contain high levels of vitamin C and antioxidants. Combine with our Green Dream Savory Blend for a little extra kick + healing nutrients and you have the perfect pair.
Bundle of organic arugula
Roasted golden beets (salt, pepper, EVOO, and Green Dream savory)
¼ C dried cranberries
½ C pecans
1 tsp Green Dream Savory Blend
Optional: Green Dream Pesto
Preheat oven to 375°. Remove the tops from the beets and wrap in foil to prevent the golden beets from turning purple. Roast for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the beets are tender.
While the beets roast, make the pesto.
When the beets are cool enough to handle, remove from foil and rub with a towel to remove the skins. Cut in thin slices and toss with salt, pepper, EVOO and Green Dream Savory Blend.
Toss all your salad ingredients and serve with pesto on the side. ENJOY!
