Staying hydrated, eating healthy, light meals, and exercising are things that we are always trying to be mindful of doing daily. And, there have been times when we get really busy and suddenly a few days or a whole week goes by where it seems like we’ve gotten a bit off track. It’s perfectly ok to treat yourself at times and when it’s planned, it somehow feels rewarding. However, when the extra processed foods and missed exercise sessions are from being too busy or just lacking motivation, a Body Reset is in order!

For this Recipe Friday, we are sharing our Raw Detox Salad, which is a really great detox meal to reset your diet. It does require a lot of chopping, but other than that, it’s really easy to make and so scrumptious!

RAW DETOX SALAD

AKA: ENERGY BOOSTING RESET SALAD

Ingredients:

Salad:

  • Kale
  • Red chard
  • Bell peppers
  • Tomatoes
  • Gold beets
  • Radishes
  • Sprouts
  • Garlic
  • Walnuts
  • Cauliflower

Dressing

  • Zest & juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1/4 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons of hummus

 

METHOD

Chop, chop, chop! Chop up all of the ingredients. For those who don’t love raw foods, the cauliflower can be soaked a bit in the dressing first and it will soften it. This is also great as a Mason Jar Salad since its hearty it won’t get soggy right away.

This salad is really delicious and nourishing! The fresh veggies are all full of nutrients that will help detox the body, boost the immune system, and aid in glowing skin. It is the perfect meal to get back on the healthy track and best of all, we made extra salad to have a healthy lunch option throughout the week.

 

Enjoy!
