Simple Salads + How to Make Homemade Dressings (gfree)

Don’t be fooled by simplicity; these simple salads offer sophisticated support to our bodies and cells. The enzyme bromelain, found in pineapple is a powerful cancer cell fighter. Cucumbers have high water content and aid in hydration, which is especially important in summer heat.

Coconut oil, a medium-chain fatty acid, is incredibly beneficial for the digestive system. It is an excellent source of energy and valuable for the immune system, heart health, the thyroid and skin.

Kiwi and strawberries contain large quantities of vitamins C.


Enjoy my recipes inside for Tomato-Cucumber Salad with Homemade Vinaigrette, and fresh Fruit Salad with Coconut Cream.

These are free of dairy, gluten, grain, and refined sugars but BIG on flavor!
