This is great for breakfast. It just needs some protein for a complete meal. An egg, not fried, or even a piece of grilled chicken would do. You could also make this for lunch, a side for dinner, or eat it for dessert!

Apple, Carrot, Raisin Salad
1 apple, chopped or cubed
1 carrot, grated
1 handful of raisins
1 dash of cinnamon
1 handful of walnuts
2 tbsp of flax seed

  • Chop the apple (with peel), grate the carrot (with peel) and put in a bowl large enough for stirring. Toss in the raisins.
  • Put the walnuts, flax seed, and cinnamon in a coffee grinder and grind for a few minutes. The oil from the walnuts and flax seed will make the mixture somewhat pasty. Dump it into the bowl.
  • Stir and eat. It’s so yummy!
  • Alternatively, you could chop the walnuts instead of grinding them. Make it how you like!

Flax seed and walnuts are both excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

I got the basic recipe from The Paleo Diet book. I added the walnuts and flax seed.
