Detox Salad: The Garden of Goodness!

by Sean Croxton & Melissa Henig

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
* Cilantro
* Red Peppers
* Green Onions
* Ginger
* Cold Press XV Olive Oil
* Lemon
* 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.

I Like it RAW: Sun Dried Zucchini Pasta!

by Sean Croxton & Melissa Henig

Who knew zucchini could taste just like spaghetti?

Melissa Henig, The Raw Food Stylist, is back for another non-cooking lesson.

Today, we’re making Raw Spaghetti with Sun Dried Tomato Sauce. The stuff is BOMB! I wouldn’t B.S. you!

Melissa also gives us the scoop on the benefits of raw foods. No, I’m not becoming a die-hard raw foodist. I love me some bacon! But I can appreciate the incorporation of raw fruits and vegetables into the diet.

So, try this one out at home. It’s super fun and the kids will LOVE it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

* Spiralizer or Potato Peeler
* Zucchini
* Sun Dried Tomato (soaked for 20 min)
* 1 Roma Tomato
* 2 Tablespoons Red Onion
* 4 Fresh Basil Leaves
* 2 Dates (soaked and pitted)
* 2 garlic cloves pressed in
* 1/2 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
* Dash of Celtic Sea Salt

I’m out! Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow. I’m bringing a friend.
