summer-into-fall beet salad

Here’s a simple salad for a healthful vegan lunch ‘chez toi’ (at your place) or ‘sur la route’ (on-the-go).  Grate up the beets and carrots the night before; season with lemon and some coconut aminos.  Voila, they’re now handy to grab from the fridge for wraps, salads, etc.!  If you don’t want a whole slew of slaw, just shred up a beet and a carrot by hand.
