The liver is the most important detoxification organ in our body! It works DAY and NIGHT to take care of us, so it’s paramount we take care of it!
This salad is created with nourishing plants that support the liver and other organs that work in tandem with it. The star ingredient in this salad is beets and beet greens. High in betalains, beets helps reduce inflammation, protect against oxidative stress and can help reduce risk of liver damage. They are also a wonderful source of fiber and vitamin C, which naturally cleanse the digestive system.
Also, I love using cold pressed flaxseed oil as it is high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids (essential to life), can help help improve gut and skin health. I add it to all my homemade salad dressings and smoothies!
Okay let’s do this!
1 large beet, grated
1/2 apple, grated
1/2 large fennel bulb, thinly sliced
1 cup beet greens, finely chopped
Juice from 2 whole lemons
3-4 Tbsp of organic, cold-pressed flaxseed oil
Mix all ingredients together, enjoy! Super simple yo!
Tips: Use all organic ingredients if possible
Store in an airtight glass container (stays delicious for 3-4 days)
Make a couple servings in advance and eat daily
Great to start your day off with this!! Adding something as simple as this salad is a baby step you can take to get more nutrient-dense, real, whole foods in your daily life.
