Lemon Chicken, Beetroot & Carrot Salad

Would you believe that this is the first salad I’ve ever made?! Somewhat embarrassing, I know. This is my very first meal of my elimination diet that I have put on by my doctor, and it was a total impromptu recipe that turned out surprisingly really well!

When I made this, I wanted something super quick and easy; and something that didn’t need much thought (or ingredients). What I’ve learnt is lemon will go good with anything, and that for salad, I need to double.

What’s the best way to use up any leftover veggies in the fridge, before they get old? There’s juicing, of course, which as you may know, I love, but what if you’re actually hungry? I say, throw ’em in for some yummy vegan curry!

Easy Detoxifying Turmeric Juice

This post is dedicated to my best friend in London, who once told me that she consumes so much turmeric that she’s “pretty sure all my insides are orange”. Ha! Well, my sweet orange friend, here’s another turmeric recipe to add to your repertoire.

The benefits of turmeric is well documented and was even used as medication centuries ago in ancient India. It’s a common spice added to a lot of Asian dishes (did you know it’s a cousin of ginger?), and I couldn’t be more pleased of how easy it was to add to a juice – the results being a very refreshing, tasty drink.

Carrot Detox Juice

Anyone else take one look at a carrot and suddenly hear their mother bellowing, “you better eat your carrots or you’ll get bad eyesight!“? I used to hear this every. single. time. carrots were present at the dinner table growing up, so much so that it’s only of my earliest memories.

Thing is, Mom was right: carrots are great for your vision, but also for so much more. Carrots are full of beta-carotene (that strong orange pigment) which converts to vitamin A once consumed. Vitamin A also promotes growth and development as you continuously grow and develop throughout your life, aids your immune support and promotes healthy – you guessed it – eyesight.

ABC Beetroot Juice

If you’re new to juicing, you may feel a bit intimidated of the vast amount of fruits you suddenly realise there are. “What goes with what?” “Wouldn’t that taste nasty together…?!” It can all be a bit of a head spin, not knowing what to do or what goes with what. I’ve certainly been there.

Luckily there’s the classic ABC beetroot juice, which, as its name can attest really is as easy as your ABCs and looks and tastes absolutely delicious and is so good for you — especially for our blood. It’s almost as if the deep, rich reddish-purple colour of beetroot (the star ingredient of the ABC juice) is a sign that it helps our blood… it certainly mimics the look of it!

As it turns out, beetroot boasts many blood health benefits: it’s packed with essential nutrients such as iron, manganese, potassium, folate and Vitamin C. Its numerous blood benefits include increased blood flow and lowering blood pressure. It also helps your blood platelet count to rise, which the case for me.
