Most people’s idea of salad is a drab boring affair of iceberg lettuce and out-of-season tomatoes. I’m here to change that perception because a really good salad is far from boring. A proper salad should be bursting with life, flavor, and should cause YOU to burst with energy.

Eating more salad is a great way to detoxify and alkalize. Raw fruits, vegetables, and fats in a well-balanced salad will give your body valuable enzymes that make digestion easy, fueling you with more energy instead of depleting it. Isn’t that what food is supposed to do?!

A well-balanced salad should have a variety of colors, textures, and flavors. By combining seasonal fruits, nuts, and seeds you’ve suddenly created a beautiful meal, instead of just an uninspired “necessity” on the plate.

Here’s a recipe for a delicious salad that’s sure to increase your energy, ease your digestion, and supercharge your entire day!
