Green Salad with Apples, Fermented Beets, and Ginger Orange Vinaigrette

GLUTEN-FREE  |  DETOX-FRIENDLY  |  DAIRY OPTIONAL


This light and refreshing salad makes a stunning starter or main course. It contains everything that healthy meals should: fiber, protein, healthy fat, and a fermented food. Every day I encourage my patients to eat more fermented foods because they support the friendly bacteria inside our digestive tracts. These beneficial microorganisms manufacture nutrients, break down environmental toxins, reduce inflammation, strengthen our immune systems, and modulate the expression of genes that influence metabolism and fat accumulation. We wouldn't live long without them.

Vegetable Beef Pho
