Get your vitamin D!

Seriously. A salad a day not only keeps the doctors away; they can help you loose weight, stay hydrated, get your leafy greens (high in iron and calcium, and sooo many vitamins), and all the other colors of the rainbow! All my daily salads can be broken into categories: the lettuce base, taste the rainbow, the extras, the protein, and the dressing (cause nobody likes a naked salad).

This daily salad is - 

A lettuce base:
Arugula
Baby kale
Spring greens

Taste the rainbow:
Red baby bell peppers
Steamed beets
Purple onion
Pea sprouts
Alfalfa sprouts
Apples
Avocado
Heirloom tomatoes 

The extras:
Artichoke
Kalamata olives
Chopped walnuts

The protein:
Crumbled tofu tossed in 
Lemon juice, sea salt and Bragg’s Sea Kelp Delight

The dressing:
1/2 a lemon (squeezed)
1 tsp Flax oil 
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar

Mix dry ingredients together, then add honey! Store in an airtight container. Can be kept out or stored in the fridge for longer periods of time. 

Cinnamon, honey and ginger have immune boosting properties. They are antiviral and antibacterial. Ginger and cayenne are both warming to the body- great for low-grade fevers. This syrup is also an excellent expectorant, great for coughs and sore throats.
