Healthy Salad for Thyroid and Liver

Submitted by: CHRISTINEGIBSON

Introduction

Cherie Calbom, a nutritionist, and best-selling author of many health books and cookbooks including, The Coconut Diet, Juicing for Life, and Sleep Away the Pounds, says, "There are a number of nutrients and foods that have been shown to contribute to a healthy liver and thyroid." I am on a high dosage of synthroid, and also suffered liver failure last summer. I'm looking to improve not only my liver, my thyroid,and my health. My research shows that raw beets, celery, cucumber, and radishes are especially good for the liver and thyroid. Adding sunflower seeds or chopped brazil nuts adds to this delectible dish. Topping this salad dish with coconut oil (see Seasoned Coconut Oil Dip or Dressing) makes it a winner for a healthy body.

Ingredients

    Beets (red and gold), cucumber, celery stalks, radish, bok choy, sunflower seeds or brazil nuts

Directions

Wash vegetables thoroughly and do not peel. Shred beets, followed by shredding the other vegetables. Mix sunflower seeds thoroughly with raw shredded vegetables. Put mixture into a salad bowl lined with bok choy leaves. Radishes can be either shredded or thinly sliced. If they are thinly sliced, there is less chance the beets will color them red. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds. Eat plain, or use Seasoned Coconut Oil Dip or Dressing to taste. Serving Size: 1 cup.

Number of Servings: 12
