Summer Superfood Salad

 

 

Summer Superfood Salad
A deliciously fresh and super healthy salad that you won't be able to stop eating. Berries and spinach are a good source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory flavonoids but I would say when it comes to berries in particular opt for organic. They have been shown to have more nutrients but also berries are heavily treated with pesticides and fungicides so non-organic berries will have a high amount of pesticide residue on them that can't be washed off. Rocket and watercress are relatives of broccoli and cabbage. The sulphurous chemicals in rocket and watercress are great for supporting the liver, detoxification and for stimulating circulation. This salad has a great balance, it's got protein from the quinoa, healthy fats, good carbohydrates and fibre.
