Medicinal Salad


Salad to the rescue!

Salad to the rescue!

Ugh! I ate too much/ate the wrong things/have indigestion/feel gassy!!!!

A simple fix to the occasionally off tummy caused by a variety of mealtime experiences including a strange combination of foods from a sunny day picnic, a late night out with alcohol and cheap diner food or even just monthly gassiness or eating too much of something you know always gives you gas, try this simple medicinal salad at your next meal:

MEDICINAL SALAD
  • 4 cups of washed mixed greens or lettuce (this looks like a lot, but you’ll love it)
  • Enough raw apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice to coat the clean dried leaves (about 2-3 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp olive or flaxseed oil
  • a tiny bit of salt and fresh pepper
  • top with cilantro/parsley and or cucumber if you have it
This is a recipe for one. Stay away from tomatos, carrots, olives or any other normal salad topping. Have this at your next meal following the unhappy meal that caused the upset.
How’s it work?
The greens and raw vinegar/lemon juice act as alkalizing brooms through your system, helping the body to process that funny meal with ease.
What’s it do?
It will relieve bloating, gas, slight reflux and sluggishness. Don’t be afraid to have this late at night after your meal in question to get a better night’s rest or as an appetizer for the next meal you’re hungry for.
