Did you know it's a good idea to change your eating habits each season?
Your body should naturally be craving seasonal foods like:
My son and I are little obsessed with carrots right now so if you're easing into the detox season this carrot salad is a must try.
SHREDDED CARROT SALAD
1 lb bag (16 oz.) organic carrots
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon umeboshi plum vinegar (or lemon juice + a pinch sea salt)
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
juice of a handful of freshly grated ginger
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 cup dried currants (optional)
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds (optional)
salt) and extra virgin olive oil, along with the juice of a handful of freshly grated ginger.
The dressing should be more pungent than one would normally like for a lettuce salad, as the intense sweetness of organic carrots tends to balance it nicely. If it becomes too sour, add a little more olive oil.
This carrot salad is not only refreshing and portable – great for picnics or packed lunches – it also has a wonderful balance between sweet and sour, and a beautiful color.
