This salad is a perfect side dish, and would be a highlight at your Thanksgiving feast. Bitter greens, like the ones found in this salad, are an amazing addition to your meals. They're teeming with nutrition, packed with fiber, and they help kickstart the digestive process. Most of us don’t eat enough bitter foods, so we miss out on their many benefits. Best of all, their taste is balanced by the sweetness of apple and beet. We hope you enjoy this beautiful and tasty way to include more bitter foods in your diet.

Today we are sharing an exclusive recipe from Dr. Junger's new book Clean Eats.
Not only is fresh cod melt-in-your-mouth delicious, but this simple miso glaze, that's ready in minutes, is insanely good too. The combination will make your whole family happy, and we can attest that with this recipe, you'll have to work hard to eat slowly!
This winter salad has a spicy kick and is a wonderful festive side dish at any holiday gathering. Celery root is easily found in the colder months, stores well, and is packed with fiber, potassium and magnesium. This tastes just as good the next day, so we suggest making large batches that you can enjoy for multiple meals.
This protein-packed seagrass makes for delicious and nutritious comfort food, no matter what season it is. It's perfect as is or with some extra protein (chicken or nuts) as a meal, or as a side dish. Bonus: it keeps in the fridge for several days. When it comes to preparing healthy food, for us, it's all about eating locally and seasonally, so feel free to vary the vegetables used with whatever you find in your garden or at the market, and let us know what you think!
This pesto is a delicious new twist on the classic. We now put this on everything; salads, wild rice, roasted vegetables, soba noodles, or as a dip for vegetables or topping for brown rice tortilla nachos. Endless possibilities.
A super quick meal, perfect for the Cleanse, Clean Gut and Refresh. It's just barely cooked so you're getting incredible flavor and texture but still maximum enzymes and nutrients. Detox-friendly, tasty and ready in minutes, this recipe is one of my favourites. Modify with any vegetables or toppings you like; the possibilities are endless.
Made with summer vegetables, these are like soft chips, roasted to perfection and super addictive but don't worry, there's no harm in eating your fill of them. They're entirely healthy and family friendly, yippee! I make huge batches when there's an abundance of summer squash and put them on salads, use in egg dishes (post cleanse of course), on gluten free pizza, as a french-fry-esque side dish, as a healthy snack. . . no matter how they're used, they always disappear instantly!
