After a weekend of indulgent eating and one or two too many drinks, I always like to eat healthy and get back on track on Mondays. This rustic salad is easy for someone with a busy schedule and jam packed full of nutrients. Beets and avocados are high in fiber, as well as Vitamin C and potassium. Beets also provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxification support. Apple cider vinegar has anti-bacterial qualities, lowers blood sugar and insulin levels and can help promote weight loss. And chickpeas are full over protein to keep you full! What did I say?! Jam. Packed.
1 can chickpeas
sea salt and pepper
1/2 garlic clove, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
You could cook the beets yourself, but most grocery stores now sell cooked beets in a convenient little vacuum sealed bag. All you have to do is open the bag and chop the beets into bite sized pieces. Get a ripe avocado, spoon out each side and the cut into similar size pieces.
Drain a can of chickpeas and add them to the beets and avocado. In a small bowl, combine oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, garlic, sea salt and pepper. Pour over the salad.
Stir until combined and adjust seasonings to taste. That’s it!
So easy and so so healthy. The perfect lunch!
