Ingredient List for Yummy Raw Food Salad
Spinach or other nutrient dense leafy green
Red peppers, the more vibrant the color the better, a great source of vitamin C
Apples, adds fiber
Sprouts are a wonderful source of nutrition and enzymes. You can also buy fresh sprouts at the store, if you don’t feel like sprouting your own
Pumpkin seeds, are helpful against parasites, although they are by no means a complete solution. I like to do a parasite cleanse at least 4x year, just to be safe.
Dried Cranberries, be sure there is no added high fructose corn syrup
Goji Berries, Asian superfood of the great Goji warrior
Marinated artichoke hearts. I love to add these whenever I am at a salad bar.
Hemp seeds, good source of protein, healthy fats and fiber.
Salad Dressing Ingredients
Extra virgin olive oil, organic cold pressed
Raw Apple cider vinegar
I like to add fresh or dried herbs to my salad dressing. There is a bulk herb section at the health food store. They have small bottles of a bunch of different single herbs and spices as well as combos. I like to look and smell, then bring home a new one to try every now and then. A great way to familiarize myself with some new flavors.
