[mindful eats] green detox salad
I’ve been a little MIA i know i know, but i’ve been crazy working this summer and trying to maintain my balance - you know how it goes.
as we’re descending into fall and the energy starts to slow down, i’m back on my detox. Detoxes are always good as the seasons change. According to Ayurvedic theory, by the time autumn rolls around, we have accumulated plenty of heat in our tissues from the summer—and as the winter air starts to roll in our bodies and immune systems become ripe host environment for cold and flu viruses. as well as slowing down and changing up my yoga practice to become more restorative, much like nature we can reflect on the year past and look back on what has worked well for us, what has elevated us, pleased us and nourished us.
This kale salad is very filling, nourishing and light at the same time. Give it a try.
