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, fuelling 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! Superfood Salad with Tahini Dressing Ingredients: Salad
  • 2 cups spinach
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 apple, petite diced
  • 1/8 cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup fresh berries of choice
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • ¼ cup diced red onion
  • drizzle of Tahini Dressing
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste
Tahini Dressing
  • ½ cup tahini
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • ¼ - ½ cup water
  Directions:   For the dressing: Whisk or blend all ingredients together. Add more water until desired consistency is reached.   For the salad: In large serving bowl, add the spinach, half of lemon juice, a drizzle of Tahini Dressing and a little sea salt. Massage until the spinach starts to soften and wilt, 2 to 3 minutes. Top with apples, pumpkin seeds, berries, onions & parsley.   If you’re seriously interested in getting healthy, restoring your digestion and boosting your energy then check out my new comprehensive program Restore your Gut Health, details here https://www.toabetterhealth.com/gut-health.
