beetroot and goat cheese salad

beetroot and goat cheese saladWant to beat a hangover? Try this salad with beetroot.

Beetroots are known to be a hangover cure due to Beta cyanin, the pigment that gives its colour.

Beta cyanin is an antioxidant that speeds up detoxification in your liver, which enables your body to turn the alcohol into a less harmful substance that can be excreted quicker than normal.

This without forgetting that rocket is a detoxifying and pine seeds are an excellent source of energy. I would call this, a power salad!


  • rocket leaves
  • goat cheese
  • beetroot
  • pine seeds

You can have it with either balsamic sauce or lemon mayo.

I wish you a life full of energy!
