Beauty Boosting Vitality Salad w/ Figs + Pomegranate

Beauty Boosting Vitality Salad w/ Figs + Pomegranate

I always try and enjoy one big salad every day. I use whatever fresh greens are in season at the time and I like to vary the leaf variety to get a combination of flavours that just sing in your mouth when you eat it. For this salad, I’ve used a delicate micro-green salad mix, which are a combination of baby lettuce and herbs that are harvested when they are very young. They add an amazing flavour and marry perfectly with baby spinach, ripe autumn figs and delicate jewels of pomegranate.

What’s Great About It:

High in hydrating, restorative  minerals and antioxidants that infuse straight into your cells to give it the goodness it craves. Greens are alkalising and rich in folate to boost your metabolism and help to nourish a dewy and glowing complexion. Pomegranate is high in vitamin C to aid in collagen production and it supports healthy heart function by reducing blood pressure and inflammation in the body.
