Roasted Beet and Orange Salad

A while back Mr.Picky had a grand idea to do the Sambazon Purifying Cleanse.  This really surprised me and I actually had never did a cleanse before.  It was hard the first day because of the fact that I could not have caffeine.  But it was only for three days and was very energizing in the end.

The meal suggestions were actually not all that different from how I eat day-to-day.  This was one of the lunch meals and was actually very filling.  Mr.Picky even enjoyed it, although he is quite fond of beets.  I can’t believe one of his favorite vegetables are actually a nutritious one.
