Warm Winter Crunchy Salad is So Tasty and Easy to Make

I love this warm winter crunchy salad. 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.  This winter crunchy salad is an exception.

Celery is a negative calorie food, meaning it takes the body more calories to digest it than the food itself contains making it a very good food for weight loss.  One stalk of celery has only a few calories because it is full of healthy cellulose. It is 95% water, very alkaline and filled with fiber.  Its weight loss benefits are well known but you would be surprised at its other amazing properties.  It provides a juicy texture to my winter crunchy salad.

A single serving of beets can boost your energy and lower your blood pressure.
Eating beets long term can help fight cancer, reduce arthritic pain, lose weight and assist in a number of other health areas. They provide health benefits and beautiful color to the winter crunchy salad.

Eat cabbage if you want the health benefits of beautiful glowing skin, and an immune system powerful enough to fight off just about anything, don’t forget this highly nutritious but common vegetable.

Carrots – forget about Vitamin A pills. With this orange crunchy superfood, you get Vitamin A and a host of other powerful health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging.

WHO recognizes that Onions help relieve symptoms such as coughs, congestion asthma, and respiratory infections. Onions are full of protective phytonutrients, vitamins, trace minerals, quercetin (an important flavonoid), chromium, and unique anti-inflammatory nutrients.

I love walnuts! My mom loved to cook with them because they add flavour and crunch to any meal. Now I know that walnuts are also highly nutritious, so much so that I consider them a superfood. They are high in omega 3 fatty acids, are a good source of protein and are rich in minerals.  These add a great crunch in my winter crunchy salad.

Arugula with its aromatic, peppery flavour adds a wonderful dimension to a salad and to your sex life too. It is also known by other names such as salad rocket, garden rocket, roquette, rucola, rugula, or colewort. It is creat for cleansing and detoxifying the body as well as reducing inflammation.

Now time to make warm winter crunchy salad!
