One Daily Practice: A Salad Every Day!

Achieving great health is not a mystery. While it might seem elusive, and the medical establishment might have us convinced that the body is a fallible organism that is destined to become diseased and die, this is not necessarily the case. Well, yes, dying is non-negotiable, but it is possible to live healthfully and robustly until the end. And the way to achieve that is through a healthy diet and a sound lifestyle.

One of the best practices we can all get in the habit of doing is to have a salad every day. One large bowl of salad can deliver a hefty nutritional punch if made with wholesome and hearty ingredients that include greens, nuts and seeds, vegetables and herbs as well as homemade dressings.

In today’s video I am going to share with you two of my absolute favorite salads. I have one of these every single day and the benefits of this practice have allowed me to feel energized, clear and healthy~

Incredibly delicious, these salads include wholesome ingredients and lots of herbs to give them great flavor as well as optimal nutrition. You don’t need salad dressing to enjoy a salad, you just need to be creative and today I will show you how you can throw your salad dressing away and start loving salad made from real ingredients.

Now I want to hear from you! What is your favorite salad? What special, natural ingredients do you add to your salads that make your taste buds hum? What’s your secret ingredient? Let us know so we can all learn from you too!

I hope you all have an amazing week and a wonderful Monday!
