Another Win-Win Recipe: Sweet Carrot Salad

I think salad gets a bad rap.  Did you ever notice how at parties or buffets hardly anyone touches it? So here’s a salad substitute that we think will change your opinion.

Carrot, Celery Root SaladMost people love the taste of sweet carrots.  And we encourage everyone to eat what they love while giving their body what it needs.   That’s why we call it a win-win!

Want more good reasons to substitute carrots for less healthy foods?

Carrots are a good source of Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Folate, Iron, Potassium, Copper, Manganese and Dietary Fiber.

PLUS they are very low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

2 tablespoons walnut oil or canola oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 small shallot, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups shredded carrots (about 4 medium)
1 cup peeled and shredded celery root or celeriac
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted if desired

1. Whisk oil, lemon juice, honey, shallot, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
2. Add carrots, celery root, raisins and walnuts.  Toss to combine.

You may find celery root in the refrigerated produce section near other root vegetables.  To peel it, remove the thick skin with a knife or peeler. You may need to peel around the root a few times.

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 15 minutes

Remember: By eating what you love AND making small substitutions like this one, you’re on your way to creating your own long-lasting style to staying fit and feeling great.  And that’s what we do at Gourmet Fitness.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
