1. Berry Green Breakfast: Enjoy this salad along with a 16-ounce glass of water each morning. This represents one of the most healthful ways to consume important greens and fruit in your diet. Why? Because your physiology is adapted best to the chewing your food whole over juicing, blending and other ways of consuming food. Here are the simple ingredients to this delightful salad:
3 cups of berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.)
8 ounce of Romaine Lettuce
1 Brazil Nut, chopped
Instructions: After rinsing my lettuce and berries, I tear up the salad and place it into a bowl and heap it with berries and sprinkle it with chopped Brazil nut. Your body will enjoy this far better than a smoothie because it loves you best when you enable digestion to begin in your mouth as you chew whole foods, rather than blend them into a drink where they absorb and digest more quickly that your physiological design ever intended.
Benefits: Of the fruits, berries are highest in nutrient density and are a good source of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. This salad is exceptionally high in selenium, vitamin C, and Vitamin E and will go along way to help boost your immune system. It is also exceptionally high in antioxidants that produce a youthful effect within you.
2. Raw Veggie-Chia Lunch: One of the easiest ways to boost vital vegetable intake is to whip up a favorite chia-seed dressing and use it as a dip for enjoying a couple of pounds of raw veggies for lunch. Enjoy any of the veggies listed below dipped in Chia Ranch Dressing, or Chia Balsamic Mustard Dressing, or Chia Salsa Dressing, or one of my favorites, Chia Ginger Dressing. Just add chia seed as the thickener for any of our our super easy-to-make dressings. (See dressing videos here.) Enjoy any of the following raw veggies with any of these dips/dressings (see also Chia Seed Uses and Recipes):
Yams or Sweet Potatoes
