Green Detox Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing

Detox Green Salad1I’m so excited about this green salad. It is raw (except quinoa. Oh you can add sprouted quinoa instead of cooked ones if you like), fresh, healthy, light and yummy. Green foods such as kale and spinach  help to increase alkalinity and detoxification in your body that can promote healing. They are also rich in vitamins A, C and K and folic acid, as well as calcium, potassium, copper and iron. These nutrients are necessary for healthy bones, skin and eyes.

I think my diet is pretty well balanced and healthy, but sometimes I feel very sluggish, heavy, tired, restless at night and fuzzy in my head. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. Maybe stress? hormones? Then it is a time I craved for sweets and carbs, which makes me crave more and feel worse after all. Instead, try to go outside, take a walk, get some fresh air, think about three things that you are grateful right now and make this salad πŸ™‚ It is perfect for those weeks when you’re feeling you need a little extra boost or a kick start on your way back to health. Crunchy greens, nutty quinoa, creamy avocado, fragrant herbs, simple, yet delicious dressing. Have it as much as you want without worrying about calories or fat. Hopefully it recharges your batteries and boost your happy hormones after eating this!
