Obesity and Eating Disorder Recovery Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper & Beet Salad

Amber Approved Salad

In my experience, clients that are in treatment for bulimia, binge eating disorder, anorexia or bulimarexia are typically faced with an increased risk of inadequate nutrition. To this end, I try to provide my clients and readers nutritious and delicious recipes to enjoy both during and after their recovery journey at ‘The Norton Center for Eating Disorders & Obesity’.

Eating healthy can be quick and easy once you get the hang of it. The key is in the planning. When you get into the habit of having the right ingredients on hand, meal preparation is a breeze, not a source of agony.

This delicious recipe is courtesy of Amber Romanuik, founder of Nourish This Life and author Amber Approved Gluten, Dairy & Sugar-Free Recipes. Amber will be joining us on the podcast on WEDNESDAY March 5 at 7:30 pm.

Roasted Red Pepper & Beet Salad


2 organic red bell peppers
3 organic large red beets
1 organic yellow onion diced
A few sprigs of organic fresh or dried dill
4 large organic carrots
1 medium organic cucumber
1/2 cup raw organic walnuts
5-6 cups of organic greens of choice ( I like spring mix)
A large handful of organic pea shoots
1/2 cup organic apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup organic flax or olive oil
3 tablespoons organic hempseeds
2 medium organic chicken breasts
2 tablespoons organic Coconut oil
Dash of organic Himalayan Sea Salt
Dash of organic Pepper
Dash of organic garlic powder
Dash of organic Cayenne powder
Pinch of organic Rosemary
Dash of organic Oregano


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Place chicken in an oven-friendly dish and add desired spices. (I like rosemary, oregano, garlic powder, sea salt and basil)
  • Bake chicken in the oven for about 35-50 minutes or until the inside is white.
  • In the meantime wash the peppers, onions and beets and chop into small pieces. Place on an oven friendly baking sheet and add coconut oil, oregano, sea salt, pepper, garlic powder, rosemary and cayenne pepper. Mix with hands and bake for 30-40 minutes or until beets are soft.
  • In the meantime in a large bowl add greens of choice, chopped carrot, cucumber, walnuts, hemp seeds and dill.
  • Mix apple cider vinegar, flax oil, sea salt, pepper, garlic and oregano in a jar for the salad.
  • Once veggies are cooked add them to the salad and also slice the chicken breast and add to the top with the dressing and mix well and enjoy!

If you are a vegan or vegetarian feel free to keep out the chicken breast! This salad is so comforting for winter and full of amazing nutrition and beautiful color. Enjoy!
