Fabulous Fall Detox Salad

September 15, 2014

The talk these days on the health front is about “detoxing” and “cleansing”, and in my opinion, we should be eating that way every day. And I don’t mean living on smoothies either, I mean eating a plant-based, whole-food diet.  A diet that will be kind to our bodies. A diet that makes us wake up the next day and feel awesome.

When Honey Crisp apples are plentiful in the Fall, this is my favorite salad to incorporate into our weekly diet. It is fast, easy and makes a wonderful side dish with leftovers for lunch.

Fabulous Fall Detox Salad

Approx. 20-25 Brussels sprouts, washed and stems removed

Two large carrots, peeled

1 apple, diced (I use Honey Crisp)

1 large celery stalk, diced

1/2 cup sunflower seeds (you can use salted!)

the juice from one lemon

pure maple syrup, to taste

salt (optional) and pepper

Using the grate/shred blade on your food processor, process the Brussels sprouts and carrots. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

Stir in the diced apple, celery, and sunflower seeds.

Add the lemon juice, salt (optional) and pepper, Add a small amount of maple syrup (about 1/2 teaspoon) to take the edge off the lemon juice.
