This salad is a refreshing alternative to your typical greens salad. It features Topinambur, a.k.a. the ‘Jerusalem Artichoke’, a prebiotic, low-glycemic food which helps control cholesterol and blood pressure levels. If you hadn’t heard of it before, now’s the time to try it!
This colorful and vibrant salad helps balance the first two chakras: tubers such as Jerusalem artichokes and beets are grounding, root-chakra foods. (The deep crimson color of beets work another layer of magic!) Carrots are a sacral-chakra helper with its orange color, and sweetness in apple and dates will also boost and balance your center of joy and pleasure. Enjoy!
