Super Cleanse Salad
We really do give our bodies quite a flogging over time. Our modern day diet, lifestyle plus other environmental factors all contribute to the toxic load our systems take on.
So it’s important to allow these toxins to move out of our body and replenish it so it can be thriving on all levels. We can easily kick- start our natural cleansing mechanisms by ensuring we include food rich in natural compounds which support the liver.
Vegetables like bitter greens such as rocket, radicchio or watercress as well are great detoxifiers, as are brassica vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and brussels sprouts. Beetroot and turmeric (fresh or powdered) are great to have in the mix too.
This Super Cleanse Salad is a great recipe to include in your repertoire and is a recipe which is included in my program, Break Though! To Feeling Fantastic in a Body You Love. Use the salad recipe as a base to throw on whatever protein you have hanging around. Things like sustainable tuna, slices of leftover steak, hardboiled egg all make tasty options.
