A new Salad to start 2014

18 Feb

This was a post I should have written to publish early in January. Well, it’s already early in February and this will have to do.

This salad was part of our first KarmaFree Cooking class last December. And what’s different about a salad you should ask… well, besides trying to instill into people’s minds the importance of eating a large green raw salad every day, we wanted to introduce some new and different ingredients people might not use raw in a salad. Can you pick them out in this picture here???

A New Salad

Scroll down to see if you guessed right…













Raw pumpkin and raw beets… They’re usually eaten cooked, but these are sweet and delicious additions to any salad.

I know that all you folks who are going thru winter might not crave something cold and raw like salad when it’s cold outside… but eating a healthy portion of raw veggies each day will certainly keep the cold and doctors away.

Here are the components of our Salad:

Green leaf lettuce
Baby Spinach
Alfalfa Sprouts
Yellow Bell Pepper
Shredded Pumpkin
Shredded Carrots
Shredded Beet
Sliced Red Onion

Toss all the ingredients in your desired proportions together in a salad bowl. Dress with your favorite dressing. May we suggest a healthy serving of our Parsley Garlic Dressing.


Parsley Dressing…. GONE!!!!!

May your winter be pleasant and your salad bowl is always full.

Beet and Lime Juice

26 Dec

I remember the first time I tasted this beet and lime juice.  To me, it was the closest thing possible to what I remembered how Kool-aid tasted.  And it’s super easy and economical to make…  It also helps when you need to strengthen your levels of hemoglobin.

Try it…



1 beet, chopped in small pieces
½ cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
¾ cup of brown sugar
Enough water to reach 1 gallon


  1. You take the beet pieces and mix them with enough water to blend in a blender.  Blend as fast as your blender will go.  Pass the blended mixture thru a sieve.
  2. Take the remainder beet from the sieve and blend again with more water.  Pass thru the sieve again and try to get as much liquid as possible.  Add the lime juice.
  3. Blend the sugar with more water and pass thru the sieve also.  This will ensure there will not be any hard pieces of sugar in your juice.
  4. Mix the remainder water and mix well.

Serve well chilled.


This juice is super easy to make, but it’s just a bit messy.  Look at my hands how they ended up.  But don’t worry, with a few hand washings, they’ll come back to normal.  This is also a great way to introduce kids to beets.
