What a fabulous #beetroot season it's been & the varieties available are stunning.....golden, #choggia (pink striped), long.....
When selecting beetroot make sure that the actual beet is very firm (if it feels soft or squidgy, it's old - don't buy it) & the leaves should look vibrant & alive. Beetroot is an excellent source of #folate & a very good source of #manganese & #potassium . Great eaten #raw (grated, finely sliced or strips) & makes a great #kraut ....not to mention #JUICE of course (juice the beet tops too - they're an excellent source of #vitamins A, C & K as well as #magnesium & #copper .
#beetroot harvest for making #kraut salad today. We're getting through the winter beds- harvested about 50 cabbages yesterday- and getting summer crops in -planted tomatoes, eggolants and caps. It's a busy time in the garden!
It was a crazy, awesome weekend @canadianhealthfoodassociation #chfaeast2017 ! I realized at the end of it all that I hadn't taken a single picture! Thankful for all the pickle lovers out there like @celebrateessentialoils who came by and shared the pickle picture love!

Whole Health encompasses so much more than what's on your plate but I must say.....❤Today's late lunch ....so yummy and healthy. Turkey 🦃 burger cooked in a little ghee with s&p, garlic & herb 🌿 blend, with 🍄 mushrooms (not one that looks like that emoji though 😳) olives for healthy fat, and a side of @saltandsavour kraut for healthy fermented goodness. And of course another big beautiful peach 🍑 for dessert. ✨✨✨ #cultivatenourishsustain
We take these amazing vegetables and turn them into yummy probiotic powerhouses so that you can reap the benefits of a tasty and fortifying side dish 💚 If YOU could make your own kraut, what flavour would you make? Share your dream tastes in the comments!
Dear Sunday, you will find me in my underwear doing food prep and trying new recipes in my kitchen. Fermented purple cabbage with ginger, apple, orange and a lil salt. Should be ready in 5-7 days. Can't wait to try 💕
