Packing a powerhouse of nutrients, this light & energizing salad will have you bursting with energy. It makes a lot so you can enjoy it all week long for easy, energizing lunches. I wouldn’t recommend skipping the currants and raisins as it adds a much needed sweetness to balance out the vegetables and lemon juice. I loved it drizzled with a touch of maple syrup just before serving.

Why call it a detox salad?

World’s Healthiest Foods reports that cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, watercress, and mustard greens) are said to be detoxifying because they provide support for the immune system, inflammatory system, hormonal system, detoxification system, and antioxidant system (source). These vegetables contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals as well as phytonutrients. For example, one such group of phytonutrients found in cruciferous vegetables are called glucosinolates. Glucosinolates are thought to have anti-cancer properties in a variety of research studies (source). World’s healthiest Foods also suggest consuming 3 servings of cruciferous vegetables each week for maximum benefit.

All the Green Things Salad

This salad is absolutely chock-full of lovely green spring produce, with textures ranging from crunchy to creamy. You can make the zippy lemon dressing and blanch, drain, and chill the peas and asparagus up to 2 days ahead, but combine all the elements shortly before serving to preserve the color of the avocado and the crunch of the greens. Delicate pea tendrils or shoots would be spectacular here, but watercress makes a delicious peppery substitute. Though you may be tempted to use only one herb, we urge you to use both: The parsley adds a burst of freshness, and the mint contributes deep herbal goodness.

How To Make Probiotic-rich Water Kefir

Recipes, Superfoods | January 4, 2017 | By

If you live a dairy-free lifestyle due to ethical reasons or lactose intolerance, then you may envy people who can easily obtain healthy probiotics by eating yogurt or drinking dairy kefir. You may even be thinking of taking probiotic supplements, but these supplements are often ineffective. Instead, try making affordable, dairy-free water kefir. The basic recipe will give you a base you can then add fruit juice or even a natural flavor extract to in order to customize your flavor.

To make water kefir, you need to purchase a starter culture of water kefir grains. Not only are they super-affordable, but you should only have to purchase them once! Not only can they be re-used, but since they are filled with living bacteria and yeast, they will keep growing and replicating, and you will actually end up with more and more the longer you keep them!

Once you receive them, make your water kefir in any glass jar (an empty jam or pickle bottle is perfect) by following these steps:

  1. Dissolve two-tablespoons of brown sugar in about one-quarter cup of hot water and then let cool to room temperature. (The kefir grains will “feed” off it, so there will be little to no sugar left in the final beverage.)
  2. Add 2 cups of room temperature water to the sugar solution.
  3. Add one tablespoon of water kefir grains.
  4. Place a clean cloth or coffee filter over the top of the jar and secure it with a rubber-band or string tied tightly around it. Do not top with the metal lid that came with the jar, or you will starve the solution of needed oxygen!
  5. Place it in warm spot in your home. The solution thrives best at around 75-degrees Fahrenheit, but don’t worry too much about the exact temperature too much. However, if you find a batch does not ferment the first time, you may have to find a warmer spot in your home the second time around. Your unheated oven is the perfect place to store your water kefir if you don’t use it daily.
  6. After about 36-hours, you should notice that the water is cloudy, and this is when you can strain the mixture to remove the grains.
  7. Once the water kefir is fully prepared and the grains taken out, you can chill it before you drink it and add a splash of fruit juice for a delicious, healthy beverage. Enjoy!

Since the process of making a batch of water kefir does take a few days, you may want begin your next batch using the same grains again as soon as you strain them from the first batch. However, you can store them in the refrigerator between uses if you don’t plan to make a new batch right away.

Day After Detox Drink!

We often use cranberries during the holiday season and forget they can be juiced. You can benefit from the power of cranberries by drinking a detox juice the day after you’ve over indulged in food or drink. Cranberries contain arbutin, a diuretic that helps flush toxic fluids from the body that contribute to bloating. Also the antioxidants present in cranberry juice support the liver and aid in protecting against heart disease and certain cancers.
