Detox Salad Recipe

I was flipping through a great book called Detox for Women by Natalia Rose, a great nutritionist and found this wonderful salad recipe to help detox the system. It is very, very tasty!!! This salad can be made anytime as it is full of vitamins and minerals to give the body an extra boost. It is also great because leafy greens are diuretic in nature and can help expel added water weight and cabbage is phenomenal at helping to rid the system of yeast. Greens also help to bring balance to the system by adjusting pH, they also help eliminate any toxins that may be present and are loaded with vitamins that we tend to lack through the winter months. This salad is the perfect beginning to spring and is handy to keep and prepare through the winter to be sure you are getting a good amount of vitamins in your system when your body battles the frigid temps.

If you can find organic or naturally grown veggies and greens that would be great and especially now the markets will be opening and there wil be lots to choose from.

Detox Salad Recipe

1/4 cup red cabbage, shredded or finely chopped - 1/2 cup yellow bell pepper, chopped - 1/2 cup carrots, shredded - 1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts - 1 cup mesclun greens or baby lettuce - 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice - Stevia to taste - 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, diced

** If you are counting carbs or are on a low sugar diet you can eliminate the carrots and replace with spinach and also eliminate the Stevia and replace with lime juice or apple cider vinegar - this is my suggestion and not listed by the author *** 

The author suggests to arrange the greens on a plate and arrange the carrots, cabbage, peppers and sprouts in four circular piles along the top of the plate like a rainbow - I like it all jumbled up but you can make it as you choose. Then, mix the lemon juice, stevia and garlic together and drizzle on top.

In case you can't find pure Stevia, I do offer here in my Local Harvest store - here's a link - http://www.localharvest.org/just-stevia-C10641

If you are thinking of trying my Liver Detox Tea or Kidney Cleanse Tea - this salad would be a prefect compliment. I enclose other recipes with these blends too but this salad is a great addition to any meal or detox diet.

Peaceful Blessings and Happy Cleansing!!

Hi Sharon:
Great blog.I am a fan of yours and here is an additional detox recipe which I created using Dandelion.You may go and check out other recipes at my localharvest web link:

I did research on dandelion and published an article about it in the Natural Awakening magazine some time ago here in Florida.

I really enjoyed your moon planting article.
I would appreciate if you advise me about any opportunities to work during the summer at local farms in the North East/Mass,NH area.I am a massage therapist and a certified master Gardener .
Appreciate feedback on my blog/articles if possible.

Best,

Thank you so much for your kind words, I am a big fan our your blog as well and love the information you provide. If we could all get together we COULD really make a difference!!!! :)

I am in NJ and not that familiar with the upper Northeast area as farm as farms and internships. I will keep my eyes and ears open for you and if I hear anything I will let you know.

I would love to read your article in Natural Awakenings magazine - if you have some time, would you mind emailing it me if you could.

Many blessings and thanks again, please keep in touch!
Sharon
