Roasted Beet Salad

IMG_5089

Think about how good for you this salad is. Beets are absolutely magical and they are quite interesting alongside organic cottage cheese. Whenever I roast beets as part of a dinner menu, I like to prep extra for things like this.

Here’s how to roast the beets: Roasted Golden Beets

I don’t put this salad together ahead of time when I meal prep – I keep the diced beets in a container and make this up each day I’m going to eat it.

I put 1 serving together like this:

1 cup baby spring mix

1/2 cup roasted beets, diced

1/2 cup organic cottage cheese

1/2 tsp olive oil

12 tsp balsamic vinegar

1 tsp sunflower seeds

Stir it up and enjoy the flavors, colors, and textures while thinking about the nutritious choice you just made for your health! There’s a reason that athletes intake beets. Google it if you want to read about all the ways that beets are a legal performance enhancer.
