If you ask me what represents Christmas, I would say food (from foie gras to seafood), champagne, wine, and presents. So much food I had during Christmas that I did eat light after. I thought my body needed a break. I had light meal such as soup, quick stir-fry, and salad.
I do think that we need to have detox diets from time to time as there is incremental level of pollution in the environment that we live in. It doesn’t help when the lifestyle nowadays is very stressful that makes our body very vulnerable. Eventually, the accumulation of toxins in our body weaken our immune system. Apart from drinking lots of water and exercise frequently, we have to make sure that we eat enough fruits and vegetables to help detoxify our body.
When I realised that this month’s In The Bag event is called ‘Detox Special’, I said to myself that I would make an effort to participate. In The Bag food event is run monthly by A Slice of Cherry Pie and Real Epicurean.
With the specified ingredients, it came straight to my mind that I could make a real good salad with them. It is a quick (no cooking involved), delicious and healthy meal which suits me just right. Happy Detoxing!
