This Power Greens Salad with Roasted Beets, Oranges, Avocado and Walnuts is so yummy! And Healthy. The power greens are a combination of baby kale, baby chard and baby spinach.

 


They’re called power greens because they are packed with antioxidant(cancer fighting) rich nutrients.

The Roasted Beets are also a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals.

 

And Avocados are loaded with heart healthy fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals. And contain more potassium than a banana!

Walnuts are also a great source of heart healthy fats, fiber, vitamins and minerals. They are also the only nut to contain significant amounts of ALA, an omega-3 fatty acid that is considered to be beneficial for heart health and reducing inflammation.

And last, but certainly not least, Oranges. These babies are loaded with fiber, vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals to keep you energized throughout your day.
