So I have been diagnosed with a Fatty Liver…..  And what does that mean,  it means that everything that is wrong with me can now be explained!

Hot Flushes – I thought I was going into early menopause.

Fat Belly – the liver is enlarged

Tiredness and irritability, stressed.

Unable to lose weight.

The good news is that the liver is the only organ in the body capable of healing itself and by a change in diet and some supplements I should be feeling a lot better soon.

So with this in mind and with my new venture into gardening, I’d like to share a recipe I discovered in Dr Cabot’s Fatty Liver book.

BEET SALAD

INGREDIENTS

10 Pieces homemade pickled  beets

1 handful fresh young beet leaves or arugula, washed and chopped.

1 Small Red Onion

1 Celery Stick with leaves finely chopped

1/2 bunch fresh Basil

10 Walnuts or 1/2 cup Pine Nuts

250g goat cheese or fetta in bite sized pieces

DRESSING

Cold Pressed Olive Oil

Apple Cider Vinegar

1/2 tsp Mustard

1 tsp Honey

METHOD

Chop all herbs and onion and place in a bowl.  Dry roast walnuts/pinenuts in a skillet or fry pan on low heat.  Watch carefully so as not to burn them.  Put aside to serve.

Just before serving, add the beet and goat cheese to salad bowl.

Whisk olive oil, honey, mustard and apple cider vinegar in a bowl and pour over salad, add nuts to serve.
