A fresh green salad.  So plain I almost didn’t post about it, but the truth is that I should post more of these staples that I make myself.  Why? Well, because a simple green salad is something we should all eat daily.  By now you all know I am kind of crazy and do things like eat kale for breakfast.  But a lot of time I start the day with a simple green salad.  It’s the easiest way to make sure you get a green boost, early in the day.  You begin your day with a powerhouse of enzymes, vitamins and nutrients.  Plus the olive oil we drizzle on it helps our bodies to absorb the fat soluble vitamins found in different kinds of lettuce and greens.  Vinegar, if it’s good unpasteurized vinegar, is fermented and still has the “mother” which gives you a probiotic boost, among other amazing health benefits.

When I went to that detox spa a few months back, they showed us a little bit of oatmeal with an enzyme cap thrown in.  The enzymes melted the food down.  Enzymes are biological particles that breakdown our food.  Our perfect bodies create these little molecules that break down our food into their smaller building blocks, in order to facilitate their absorption by the body.  They are found mostly in the mouth, stomach and small intestine.  But our current diet makes a lot of us have very low enzyme production.  But we can also ingest them and boost them through eating raw food, like salad.  What’s not to love about a good, simple, green salad?
