Spinach Salad

Like kale and Swiss chard, spinach is an excellent source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green color, it is found in all green vegetables especially the green leafy vegetables.

Chlorophyll is one of the greatest food substances for cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems such as the liver and blood. Chlorophyll is also a very powerful source of magnesium and is regarded by the natural health industry as an incredible healing substance.

Spinach salad is a great way to add this power packed substance into the body, and it tastes delicious too. There are many variations of this super green salad; this is the one that stands out for my family and friends. I use a honey mustard dressing to top this salad. This dressing acts as an antioxidant and digestive enzyme as well as a thermogenic (fat burner), and has essential fatty acids too boot. This sweet and spicy dressing generously coats the leaves of spinach, so it literally melts in your mouth, and even those who profess not to like spinach will certainly be adding this salad to there diet.

With all these high potency ingredients you will not only be getting a nutritional charge from the food but also more energy whilst warding off disease in the body.
