I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, seasonal eating is one of the best ways not only get to get in tune with the earth, but give your body exactly what it needs during this time. Which for a lot of us means a bit of cleaning…
Going into spring, we are thinking of starting fresh and cleaning the slate. Making room for new growth, habit changes and prepping the body to get through summer.
We’ve had a long winter and I think are all craving not just a bit of Vitamin D, but also colour. K, so I can’t bring the clear skies, but I can help to cleanse and detoxify.
This salad is not only beautiful to get the body cleansing regularly, with the addition of dandelion and edible flowers, but it is also a feast for the eyes, something I think of as so important when we are nourishing the body and heart. Might change the way you look at salads, no? And besides…we finally have a use for those edible flowers!
EAT THIS: Because a daily dose of greens is important, and when you add in bitters like dandelion greens you are assisting in giving your body all the goods that you would want during a cleanse or detox diet. Dandelion aids in digestive health, kidney health and liver health. All the key ingredients to get you cleansing beautifully plus a boost on antioxidants to add onto the nutrition power punch.
