Kale Power Bowl

 

This power bowl is stacked with superfoods!

When creating this recipe for myย Easy 1 Day Detox, my first step was to consider what foods or ingredients would best promote the body’s natural detoxification process- and how could I combine them all to make something powerful but delicious? Avocado, blueberries, quinoa, raw walnuts and wild salmon all topped the list providing a well-rounded and balanced source of nutrients.

Many of these ingredients may be common grocery items for you so hopefully you have some of them already (win!).

Here’s are some of this recipe’s nutritional highlights-

Healthy Fats

Avocado and walnuts are an amazing source of healthy fats, specifically omega 3’s.ย 

Rich in Antioxidants & Anti-inflammatory

Kale, Spinach, Basil, Blueberries and Quinoa all have major antioxidant properties and inflammation fighting agents.

Promotes Digestion & Supports Adrenal Health

Mint has also been shown to promote digestion and support adrenal health.

If you’re looking for an easy bowl that packs a powerful punch, this one is for you!
