As I stand to shake the crumbs off my shirt and shed my cravings for all things sweet and salty, I give you my latest and greatest detox creation:
Everything green and red from the fridge (and some light feta) with a side of kale chips
This is NOT the perfect salad or even very creative by my standards but nonetheless, here’s the list I generally use to evaluate what’s on my plate:
- greens and other veggies -I use a lot of spinach, parsley and kale
- healthy fat (i.e. olive oil, avocado)-have you tried coconut oil? I have been meaning too.
- protein-I like chickpeas and tuna
- lots of water on the side! although I am huge tea and ‘potion’ drinker (meaning vitamin and detox teas), oh yeah; then there’s the wine.
To be completely transparent, I chased this plate with a spoonful of peanut butter. I couldn’t help it.
Here is; however, a salad creation I also made and loved this week:
Here is the recipe (I use this term loosely):
1/2 cup fennel
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup snap peas
1 small or medium apple (I used a Gala)
1/4 cup sliced almonds (it would also be good with walnuts)
Dressing is made up of peach yoghurt (because that’s what I found in the fridge) with some lemon juice mixed in.
Have you eaten something green today?
