Hope you all enjoyed my last recipe for “The Ultimate Fat-Burning and Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie”. Today I decided that most of my upcoming recipes will be mostly alkaline, green, cleansing and detoxifying (but some sweet goodies too!).
Like I mentioned on my last blog post, the holidays approach and I’m sure you’ll be looking for some simple, cleansing recipes after those big family meals. So I hope you try all these simple salads and smoothies I’ll be posting and enjoy them too!
Gastrawnomica’s Alkaline Salad with Creamy Orange Dressing
Serves 1 or 2
2 cups chopped spinach
1 cup chopped lettuce of choice
2 carrots, shredded
1 medium beet, shredded
1 1/2 cups jicama, in small pieces
1 small zucchini, peeled
1 small carrot, peeled
1 handful of fresh cilantro, parsley or basil leaves
** Season dressing to taste
Prepare a bed of spinach and lettuce, top with shredded vegetables and jicama. Blend 3/4 of the avocado, zucchini, carrot and herbs. You can substitute with any other fresh herb you like. Add around 1/4 cup or a little bit more water until smooth but creamy. Slice the rest of the avocado over vegetables and serve with dressing.
