Shrimp & Blueberry Salad

Promo_BP3a_BlueberriesWant to know what types of food you can eat while following the Seasonal Detox Guide by Elite Health Coaching? REAL FOOD! You don’t need to buy any special potions or pills to be successful on this program, just real food. Here is a lunch recipe from the Summer Detox:

Shrimp & Blueberry Salad

1 – 1 1/2 c. lettuce
1/4 c. fresh blueberries
4-5 large shrimp, grilled
1/4 c. cucumber slices

DRESSING:
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced

To make the dressing, mix lemon juice, olive oil, and garlic in a small bowl. Place the lettuce in a bowl and then top with cooked shrimp, cucumbers, and blueberries. Mix dressing before pouring on top of the salad.

Each ingredient plays an important role in the detox program:

Blueberries – Rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C, lowers cholesterol, aids in digestion, anti-depressant
Cucumbers – Anti-inflammatory, rich in fiber, regulates flow of urine, cooling food
Lemons – High in Vitamin C, help flush out toxins
Garlic – Cancer fighting properties, heart friendly, antibacterial, antiviral
If you choose a lettuce like kale for example, it is rich in Vitamin A & C, helps lower cholesterol, controls blood sugar, and is high in fiber.
