We are delighted to share Mel’s recipe for a delicious, nutritious, ‘super boost’ salad, packed with ingredients to make skin glow and strengthen hair and nails. Over to Mel for her recipe and tips!
Super Boost Salad:
All the ingredients in this super salad have been picked for their excellent skin, nail and hair boosting properties. It’s a lovely, easy and quick salad to throw together and best of all, it’s delicious and contains Vitamins A & E, Amino Acids, Calcium, Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper, Iron and Manganese – to name just a few!
1) Add green leaves as your base ingredient – dark green leafy ones are best so spinach, watercress, rocket or kale etc.
TIP: If using kale add some that has been mushed with half an avocado and some sea salt first – this softens the kale and makes it much more delicious and easy to eat as it can sometimes be a bit tough if thrown in raw on its own.
2) Add a handful of Quinoa which is a fantastic source of protein and amino acids (the best way to cook this is 1 x part quinoa to 2 x parts water with some vegetable stock)
3) 1 x hardboiled egg
5) Half an avocado (the other half of the one used with the kale above)
6) Red and Yellow peppers
8) Alfalfa Sprouts
9) Pumpkin seeds, pine nuts and some sesame seeds
10) Raw Broccoli
12) Basil leaves
2 parts Olive Oil to 1 x part Balsamic vinegar or Cider vinegar
1 x pinch Mixed dried herbs
Raw crushed garlic
1 x pinch of dried chili
1 x teaspoon coconut oil
1 x small teaspoon mustard
Shake it all together and throw it on…
