An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: Great Green Salad

arugula and cucumber salad

By now, hopefully you’ve gotten the memo on eating more greens! Greens boost immunity, prevent cancer, give us energy, and pack a powerful nutritional punch to keep our bodies functioning optimally!  So figure out ways to include them in your meals EVERY DAY!

I usually start my day with a spinach smoothie and have a salad with my lunch.  Below is a simple green salad I love because it ‘s easy to make (heck, it only has 3 ingredients), it tastes delicious (because I use what ever dressing I’m loving at the moment) and I know its great for my body!

Bowl full of arugula (use romaine or spinach or mixed greens if you prefer)

1/2 to 1 avocado cubed

1/2 small cucumber or celery stick sliced

FAVORITE DRESSING (mine is either Annie’s Goddess or Trader Joe’s Champagne dressing)

You can add feta or onions or anything you choose to make it YOUR favorite!
