It’s packed full of healthy fats, vitamins, and fiber to restock your body with those badly needed nutrients!

Our detox salad works well topped with grilled chicken or shrimp for added protein, or as a side to accompany roasted chicken or fish. It will be a wonderful addition to your get-back-on-track meal plan!
