Whenever you make a salad, (and hopefully that’s everyday) try using a variety of different coloured vegetables, as they not only look great together, but also contain different phytochemicals, which help protect our cells from damage and disease.
As you can see from this picture, I made a salad consisting of:
Cucumber – The natural diuretic effect of cucumbers helps flush and cleanse the kidneys and bladder.
Spinach – The high fibre and cleansing effect of spinach, aids the digestive system by keeping things moving.
Red Peppers – Are high in Vitamin C and antioxidants, which helps to reduce the risk of infections.
Avocados – The healthy monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats that they contain, promote a heathy heart.
Avocado oil – Rich and smooth, tastes great and has many health benefits.
Cherry Tomatoes – Are high in Lycopene, an antioxidant, which helps reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and sunburn.
Feta Cheese – Is lower in fat than most other cheeses and contains beneficial bacteria.
