RECIPE: Pomegranate & Goji Detox Salad

by Polly N on January 4, 2013

There’s nothing better than a good salad, especially if you’ve done your fair share of overeating over the festive period. One of the keys to staying healthy is to have a fully stocked fridge full of greens, fresh fruit and vegetables. This way, you can throw a delicious salad like the one below together, make a smoothie or juice which floods your body with much needed vitamins and minerals. Pomegranate isn’t something that I buy very often but I am loving these colourful balls of goodness.

Pomegranate Salad


Place all ingredients in a bowl, pour over the dressing and serve. (be sure to chop the broccoli into very small bits, especially if you’re not keen on raw broccoli. You won’t even notice it!)

Wonderful website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion
forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a
part of community where I can get comments from other
experienced individuals that share the same interest.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks
a lot!
