Crunchy Salad Bowl

 

 

This is the fourth or maybe fifth time I have done this cleanse and every time I miss the same thing. Crunching! I miss chewing. The toughest is when I used to try out the eight or ten day juice fasts and then even when you start eating food, you have to ease yourself back on to the solids. I don’t know about you, but in the last three days, what I found the toughest on the Green Smoothie Cleanse was putting all these fresh, organic veggies into the blender without being able to crunch their goodness.

My first meal post cleanse is a salad. I am transitioning out, as I went in which makes today an all raw day. Raw, raw for raw.

I opted to have the ingredients of a smoothie- before it ran through the blender. In following the Rainbow rules, I ensured the majority was green, but that there was a still a healthy variety of colour in there too.

Keeping today’s post short and sweet (like me), here is my Unsmoothied Fresh Crunchy Salad with some high omega 3 protein from hemp and chia seeds.
