DROP THE BEET – Walnut Beet salad

DROP THE BEET

Does this scenario sound familiar?

You:“I don’t feel good..”

Anyone who will listen:“Well you must have that thing that’s going around!!”

shutup!

Do you want to minimize the risk of this conversation happening?

Do you want to skate through the sickness season that consumes society from October 31st-April 1st EVERY

We all know what we can do to prepare our bodies for the sickies that plague our homes, schools and work spaces.

Take your vitamins. Stock up on Emergen-C. Wash your (damn) hands.

FACT: Vitamins can help fight off colds and sniffles.

Build up your immunity now before sh*t hits the fan this winter with the helpful vitamins found in delicious, palate pleasing produce.

This is an excellent dish to familiarize yourself with to maybe break out on

Thanksgiving to spice up the usual carb heavy side dishes!

Pilgrims loved beets… I think.

Yes! Turns out when they weren’t too busy wearing buckled shoes and hats (why did that look EVER go out of style)

 they were munching on this underrated root vegetable.

The two main ingredients in this dish are goodies you can find in your

Casco Bay Organics delivery!  You can feel good knowing your produce is local, organic, and full of

nutrients to keep you feeling your best all winter long.

BEETS— here to fight off inflammation and help detoxify your blood…send that cold

PACKING!

MIZUNA GREENS—full of vitamin C, your not-so-secret weapon commonly used at the

first sign of a runny nose.

Dinner guests will swoon over the bright ruby color which will be all over your hands

after handling them(Not unlike, say, a crime scene)

They’ll say, “Ooooh! What’s that?!”

You’ll say matter of factly, “Oh this immune boosting salad? Yeah, just something I’ve been using to stay healthy this season!”

BONUS—-beets may boost your libido! ←I would say that’s a pretty solid plus side to trying this dish!
