Lettuce Salad with Roasted Bell Peppers

detox-foods-lettuce-salad

Lettuce salad is a favorite high raw food salad with Mango Lettuce Salad being my all time favorite. I tend to go the raw food way once in a while to detox the body. Detox foods or high raw food help to cleanse the system and its good to rest our system once every few days. Not to mention they also aid weight loss. :)

I used what I had in the fridge to make myself a light and filling salad. I like the smoky flavor of roasted bell peppers and they make a great addition to today’s lettuce salad. Avocado provides the healthy fat and pomegranate is rich is antioxidants.

If you are looking to detox your system or lose weight with healthy food then hop over to check out some raw food recipes that I have blogged earlier.

Peel, cut an avocado into pieces and add to the bowl. Peel, slice a red onion and add to the bowl. Wash, pat dry a head of iceberg lettuce and tear into bite sized pieces and add.

    I’m seeing a healthy salad that it’d be a routine in weekly meals. However, never added honey, good sweet point on that :)

    Cheers,
