Moroccan Chickpea, Baked Beetroot and Sweet Potato Salad, with a Pomegranate and Orange Dressing

Weeeeeee to this salad, yep by now ya'll know the gal loves her salad's but THIS!!!! It's a satisfying meal in it's self that ticks soooooo many of my boxes I need in a meal, Protein, healthy carbs, good fats , nutrients, vitamins, fibre, vitality and a whole loads of Yuuummmmmm!!!! 

Why I love this creation? Beetroot is the main star

*Beets contain a powerful phytonutrient called betalain, which is a powerful antioxidant, anti inflammatory and detoxifying agent

*It’s rich in vitamin C, folate, nutrients and fibre to support healthy digestion

*It helps reduce inflammation in the body, which is essential for weight loss, good health and a disease free body! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :)

1 large sweet potato chopped into chunks

2 cups of mixed lettuce leaves
