I know! I know!
I was supposed to blog about glutathione, your most powerful antioxidant enzyme, today.
BUT I have a bunch of little stuff to do around the office, including preparation for tomorrow’s radio show. Come back tomorrow and I’ll drop some more antioxidant truth bombs on you.
In the meantime, get a load of this yummy Detox Salad courtesy of our favorite Raw Food Stylist, Melissa Henig.
The main detoxifying ingredient is cilantro. It pulls out all kinds of nasty toxins, including heavy metals like mercury.
Personally, I like to have cilantro as a garnish when I’m chowing down on fish due to the mercury issue. I also like it on my eggs along with turmeric, of course!
It’s great on tacos, too!
Here’s what you’ll need:
* Food Processor w/Shredder Blade
* Red Peppers
* Green Onions
* Cold Press XV Olive Oil
* Apple Cider Vinegar
* Maple Syrup
Just mix them all up, put ‘em on a plate, and throw down!!
This a great excuse to stop by your local Farmers Market this weekend. Get to know your farmers. Go organic. And get your detox on with this Real Food Fantastic dish!
Post your thoughts, videos, and Detox Salad pics on our NEW Just Eat Real Food Facebook fan page. Lots of great stuff on there!
See you tomorrow!
See you next week.
