As we start to shift into warmer weather, it’s a great time to also shift our eating habits. Salads come into their own during Spring and Summer, they are light, nutritious and full of life-giving benefits.

One of our favourite salads to make during this time is from Anthony William’s book – ‘Liver Rescue‘. He provides two options A & B and both have this gorgeous ‘Orange Vinaigrette Dressing’ to accompany them.

The Liver Rescue Salad (recipe below) is packed with ingredients to support healthy liver function and you can mix it up, change around the ingredients or even add steamed broccoli and asparagus if you want a ‘warm’ element.

Liver Healing

Having a healthy, functioning liver is critical to good health. Our liver is one of the hardest working organs we have – its job is to sort out the good from the bad. It allows all of the good things from fruits and vegetables to pass through to our bloodstream and all of the toxins from poor food choices and our environment to be eliminated or stored away (if it can’t get rid of them safely). It is the master sorter and filterer for our body, so it’s important to support it with great food choices. The other great thing about the liver is…it takes the juice (the living waters) from the fruits and vegetables you eat and stores it away to be used at a later date.

Daily Ritual – drink lemon water every morning upon waking to support your liver. Lemon water is easy to make, simply add 500ml-1000ml of filtered water to a glass and squeeze 1/2-1 lemon into it.

Orange Vinaigrette Dressing

This dressing is delicious. It is light, sweet and refreshing and great for the warmer days. It is also really simple to make, which means it easily becomes a staple in your fridge to have on hand for your lunchtime salads.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne (optional)*

*if you are not usually a fan of cayenne pepper, you can certainly leave it out. But, I highly recommend you give this recipe a try with a tiny bit of cayenne pepper, it really adds a lovely warmth to the dressing and it has wonderful healing properties that your liver loves!

Blended with Kuvings SV500 Vacuum Blender
