Salads To Love~

Raw foods are high in fiber which has a cleansing effect.

They are also loaded with enzymes and healing compounds that have anti-inflammatory effects.

One easy way to eat raw on a regular basis is with salads designed around vegetables.

If you have a salad with 6 or 7 different vegetables every day you will be healthier for the doing so.

One of my favorites:

Shredded carrots, beets, red cabbage, yellow peppers, kale, arugula and squash.
A cucumber is good too.
Dress with extra virgin olive oil...which flushes the gallbladder and keeps the intestines lubricated.

Hi Bea,
Thanks for your nice email. I'm up past my bedtime, but I've bookmarked your blog and want to come back. I grow lots of herbs, but don't always make the best use of some of them.

I prefer most herbs fresh, too. I try to keep some in pots over the winter in my garden window.
