Making Good Food – Carrot and Kimchi Salad

You’ve got to try this yummy carrot and kimchi salad with sesame seeds. It’s not time consuming at all. When you and your loved ones eat it, not only do you get the health benefits of carrots – which include Vitamins A, B6 and K1, potassium and biotin – but you will also reap the benefits of the freshly juiced ginger in our Root for Ginger kimchi, which has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, aids in digestion, and can be effective against nausea. Additionally, the red pepper flakes in the kraut not only release endorphins, making them a natural painkiller, but also act as an anti-bacterial.
