one week in.........best colorful recipe

Monday, February 04, 2013

so today makes one week in the thyroid supplementing, cholesterol lowering life. Can not say my energy is any much better, but I wish I had a cheap test to see how my cholesterol is doing. Am totally enjoying eating more plants and colors. I found the BEST recipe for beets....which I generally would NOT eat.

This is an alteration of one I found here at SPARK so I am NOT the original author. But, that being said, this is how I did it.

In food processor I shredded:
1 peeled raw beet
2 medium onions
2 medium carrots
1 average size cabbage

In glass measuring cup I mixed
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 heaping tablespoons stevia
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon allspice
salt and pepper to taste
put this in the microwave for a minute or until begins to boil

poured this over and mixed into the shredded veggies
put the whole mess in the microwave in a covered pyrex for 3 minutes
stirred it up and put it in the fridge (or freezer if in a hurry) to chill

I want to tell you how amazingly yummy this is! It is a great topping for a sandwich or side for anything. The entire salad turns a lovely bright purple-pink. I need to go back and find that recipe on Spark and rebuild it with the stevia instead of the brown sugar that it called for and get the calorie count. Can't be much.

Here's to a clean eating/living day and MUCH SPARK LOVE TO ALL!

    I just realized I spelled beets wrong. Beets, not beats. Maybe I was angry when I wrote that lol.

    Not a fan of beats. How is it that beats taste so yucky to me, yet it is used to sweeten foods cheaply? I don't get that. Once when I was very young I mistook beats for cranberry sauce. I was so upset, don't know why but I think I cried. With that being said, now that I have matured and so have my taste buds I may give this one a try. But look out, if I need to cry I'm coming back here. lol
