In the winter salads are not as appealing; we gravitate towards warm foods. Still some raw foods filled with enzymes and nutrients are good for us.  I tend to stay away from the leafy vegetables during this time.

 Ingredients:

1 Celery stock
1 small Beet
1 Carrot
Handful Arugula
1/2 cup Cabbage

Facts on Nori –

This seaweed is thin,  and its oily iridescence reflects the colours of the rainbow. This is the most popular Seaweed for eating, both historically and today. We mostly know it from eating Maki Sushi.

Nori is high in protein, contains carbohydrates and almost no fat. It is rich in vitamins A, B2, niacin, B12, plus C and D. 

It comes in sheets in a packages or dried granules that can be sprinkled on food either during cooking or at the table.
