Ayurvedic Beet Salad

Larisa Litvin Recipe 4 Comments

Harvested in the autumn, beets are a delightful winter food as they are sweet and warm. Beets fortify the blood, cleanse the lymphatic system, and provide a myriad of healing benefits to the digestive system. In addition, they are rich in vitamin A, minerals and folic acid, and are terrific for overall female health.

In our recipe for Beet Salad, the walnuts add a nice crunch and are a stimulating food for the brain.
