I know I've mentioned this before, but I have a $3.95/month subscription to the Dr. Fuhrman Member Center. The main thing that I get out of it is one Dr. Fuhrman approved uber-healthy recipe sent to my e-mail inbox every day. You are probably asking why someone would need such a thing, given the proliferation of healthy recipes on the internet in places like Pinterest and on blogs, plus all of the amazing cookbooks that are now out there.
Dr. Fuhrman’s Beet, Arugula and Chickpea Salad
I just like the reminder that Dr. Fuhrman's Nutritarian recipes are what I am striving for. I'm no where near a perfect Nutritarian (I'm making brownies today with maple syrup in them), but the more real Nutritarian recipes that I can find, make and fall in love with, well, the better.
And that's just what happened with this Beet, Arugula and Chickpea Salad. I had come home later than usual from work last night and I wanted to throw together a nice dinner for my family. I didn't have the time to start washing and chopping salad greens, so the base of arugula here, besides the fact that I adore arugula, was a huge time saver. As was the fact that I always keep Trader Joe's Steamed Beets in my refrigerator. That cuts a whole lotta work outta this recipe.
