Mealtess Monday Recipe

Raw Broccoli Salad—
By increasing the number of vegetables we eat,  we not only support our planet but bring harmony to ourselves and an increased sense of well being.
Returning to a healthier diet,  we ingest healthy nutrients that support us physically, emotionally, mentally and psychologically. We become what we eat.
I chose this raw broccoli salad as the recipe I wanted to share with you because I have always loved broccoli but felt I was loosing many of its vital nutirents by boiling or steaming this super veggie. Tired of cooking it the usual way and wanting a raw formula that would work, I found this fantastic salad that one could easily call a medicinal salad due to its amazing ingredients and health benefits. Here it is:

Chop to your liking a raw broccoli head

Add chopped garlic to your liking

Sprinkle cumin (either seeds or powder, this depends on your taste)

Add coriander leaves, (fresh or dry, depends on availability, better fresh)

Use petal salts to your liking or some Himalayan salt

Olive oil or grapefruit oil to your liking

Add fresh lemon juice (be aware of the amount you add or else it can be too bitter)
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and put in the fridge an hour or so (you can also eat it immediately. If you leave it in the fridge, the lemon will start eating at the broccoli and it will be easier to eat but depends on your taste for crunchy veggies).
Enjoy, you can become addicted to this salad!
