Eggs and Salad Mastery
Some call me a salad master. What is mastery? Doing something over and over and over until you master it. Right?
I have made a lot of salads in my life. Seriously, a lot. I even ran a raw food kitchen at a retreat center.
A good salad starts with high quality ingredients. Local, in-season, fresh, and organic is where the salad starts. And it is possible
Purpose Of Salad Fiber
I consider that the salad is more for cleaning out my intestines than it is for anything else. Keeping food waste moving down and out is necessary for a healthy gut and healthy life. Think rough-age. Think house cleaning.
Digesting (Enzymes And Acids)
I also consider how the salad will feel in my tummy. Greens are not easy to digest. This is why kids do not like veggies (especially the raw green ones). It is becuase they do not have the digestive enzymes to break it down (under age 7 or so). They are best off getting the nutrients of greens via ghee or butter from organic grass fed cows.
Sometimes as adults we also have troubles breaking down the salad. That is why I consider the acid and enzymes components of the salad of the utmost importance.
ALWAYS include at least one of these salad digesting components: lemon, apple cider vinegar, onion, or kraut.
