Warm Apple-Cinnamon Salad

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Not only does apple mix well with carrots, sweet potato and cinnamon in a juice but it also works as a delicious autumn or spring warm salad! I always love adding fruit to a salad, so here is a roasted fruit salad with the addition of the other roasted vegetables. This salad is a delicious plant-based meal on its own, or use it as a starter or side dish. Cinnamon has been shown to be beneficial for supporting healthy blood sugar levels and it helps reduce those junk-food cravings.
