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-foods diet. A diet that will be kind to our bodies. A diet that makes us wake up the next day and feel awesome.
I have adapted this recipe from a fabulous food blog, OhSheGlows. If you have not been to her blog, you are missing out! It is a must read and you will always find something there you love.
I always make this salad in the Fall when I can find Honey Crisp Apples at the market!
Fabulous Fall Detox Salad
(Adapted with love from ohsheglows)
Approx. 19 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. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired (I did not!)
Serve and enjoy!
