Cumin Carrot salad

Vitamins and SPICES is the name... And this salad has lots of them.

3 large carrots, grated
1 can of garbanzo beans (16 oz)
1 kale leaf, chopped
3 sprigs of Italian parsley, minced
2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp tumeric
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1/4 c olive oil
2 Tbsp Hemp seeds
1 Tbsp agave
Juice of half of a lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Carrots are packed with vitamin A, which is great for skin and eye site!
Garbanzo beans, AKA chick peas have the required protein to make this a complete and satisfying meal.
Hemp seeds also add in some proteins, minerals and omegas (healthy fats).
Cinnamon and turmeric have great anti-inflammatory properties and aid digestion.

You can also choose to add dried cranberries, raisins, or chopped up dates to give it a good balance of sweetness (instead of using agave syrup)!
