'All theory, dear friend, is gray, but the golden tree of life springs ever green'

Greens are healthy any time! Part of the detox process involves cutting down on most foods except for your fruits and salads. For 3 weeks now, we have been 100% raw! Until we complete our detox, our breakfasts will consist of fruits such as berries and melons. Our lunches and dinner will include salads and zucchini pasta. Eating raw fresh fruits, along with fruit vegetables such as zucchini and red pepper - and greens and herbs - are tasty, healthy and easier to prepare than cooked foods. We'll be sharing a variety of salad recipes in the upcoming posts. Enjoy our recipe below for Raw Zucchini Spaghetti With Spinach Pesto and topped with cayenne pepper (for detox support). This is the easiest dinner to make!
