As most of you already know, I love eating fresh fruit or green smoothies/juices for breakfast. For lunch, I love a clean salad!
This one is my fav to throw together:
Fresh baby spinach to help with digestion and skin health. I added the Mandarin Oranges to help my body absorb the spinach better! Purple Cabbage is where I get my fiber and potassium. Mushrooms replace my need for grilled chicken and help with weight management and the immune system. Carrots for healthy skin, teeth and anti-aging. A few Cranberries for sweetness, heart, oral and vaginal health. Walnuts as a healthy fat (brain health) replacement for unhealthy croutons. And instead of dressing, I spray the salad with Bragg Liquid Aminos as my liquid protein and I add Hummus on top to bring everything together.
That plate is full of nothing but life and energy 💫 Makes having a great day a little easier.
