Ultimate Detox Salad

The best way to flush toxins isn't a fast or an herbal cleanse, says nutritionist Natalia Rose, author of "Detox for Women"(William Morrow, 2009).

Instead, eat water-rich food like leafy greens and cabbage to fight yeast overgrowth, restore PH balance, and eliminate impurities.

Remember -- organic is best.

Makes 2 - 4 servings

1/2 c. red cabbage
1/2 c, yellow bell pepper, julienne or chopped
1/2 c. carrots shredded
1/2 c. alfalfa sprouts
1 c. mesclun greens or baby lettuce
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
Stevia to taste
1 t. fresh garlic, diced

Place the greens on a serving plate and arrange the carrots, red cabbage, yellow peppers and sprouts in four circular piles along the top of the plate like a rainbow. Mix lemon juice, stevia and garlic together and drizzle over the top.
