Thanks again for being patient with me while I was getting the site up & running with all this amazing info! Here, to end off the week is a step~by~step action plan for building the Ultimate Salad!!! Enjoy!!!
When building anything, you need to start with a strong foundation. When building your salad the foundation is your ‘Greens’. Include a generous amount of Greens as the base of your salad, it’s where your body is receiving the biggest bang for your buck plus they are extremely alkalyzing. Greens are also some of the most nutrient~rich foods on the Planet, & you want your share!
(Red Leaf & Wild Mix Greens with Cranberries, Garlic, Walnuts)
Good choices for Nutrient~Rich Greens are:
~Red/Green Leaf Lettuce
~Dandelion / Mustard Greens
Fill your Salad now with an Assortment of Vegetables. You’ve heard the saying ‘Eat a Rainbow‘ so try & use as many different colours as possible as that will give you a broader spectrum of Body Happy Nutrients.
Colourful Veggies Choices are:
~Red / Purple:
~Peppers (Chili & Bell)
Yellow / Orange:
~Peas / Edamame
Next throw in some Herbs & Sprouts, these are packed full of Detoxifying & Nutritious MicroNutrients. A little will go a long way here, add for taste or add for what it will do for your body, either way just add some:
Topping your salad off with an assortment of Seeds & Nuts & Dried Fruits should assure you of a wonderful array of Nutrients that your body craves & will thank you for with an abundance of Energy & Balance:
Seeds & Nuts & Dried Fruits:
You now want to add some Healthy Fats as these will help your body absorb essential Vitamins like A, D, E & K.
Healthy Fat Choices:
~Flax Seeds (Ground)
~Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or a good mixture of 3-6-9 Oil is included in your dressing, don’t add more here.
Dressings are the last item on a Salad. Your choices can be simple to complicated. After all that work you put into your Salad let’s keep it simple, we don’t want to cover up or over power the Natural Flavours of all your hard work!
