“Goddess Salad” from An Iowa Girl Eats….Really love her site, and all the pretty pictures of plants, and food prep. And she is right, Kale is easy to grow, I think mine was still yielding in December.

SERVES 1

  • 2 cups loosely packed fresh kale, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cups loosely packed baby spinach, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
  • 10 raw, unsalted almonds, roughly chopped
  • 3 strawberries, sliced
  • 1 large carrot, peeled & sliced
  • 1/4 cup blueberries

Another is simple every morning drink lemon water before anything else.

And of course, Gillian Michaels Detox water. On pinterest there are a different testimonials and combinations. Word of caution, do not oversteep the dandelion tea, otherwise the drink will act as a laxative which is not the goal. They say plain cranberry juice no sugar but for me it does a terrible job of masking the bitter taste of dandelion (and I like bitter tastes!) so I add green tea sometimes, mint and agave or honey. Lots of water and ice. You can play with the proportions to see how your body reacts.
