Beet salad is anti-inflammatory!

Retinol, which is an active form of vitamin A, plays a pivotal role in the development of our immune cells, which fight off foreign invaders that cause inflammation.

  You will love the fresh, zesty Mediterranean flavour created by Chef Ezra Title in this versatile raw tomato sauce. I have paired it with kelp noodles—at only 7 calories a cup, they are a fantastic, low-carbohydrate, wheat-free alternative to pasta and other noodles. One of the great benefits of kelp noodles is that they contain iodine. Iodine is a trace mineral and essential nutrient that plays a key role in metabolism and thyroid function. If you can’t locate kelp noodles,...
