This is Kelly Gellner's favourite “Eat Yourself Skinny” detox salad

Springtime is the perfect season for cleansing and eating detox promoting foods. FIT loves this recipe from Kelly of Eat Yourself Skinny, which is bursting with good stuff. 

 

“This detox salad is legit loaded with so many delicious veggies such as brussels sprouts, broccoli, kale and cabbage, has such great texture with the added sunflower seeds and crunchy almonds, and it literally makes a TON so you are sure to have plenty to last you the whole week!  I just love making this because I can easily just throw everything into my food processor, blend away and I’m done.  Doesn’t get much easier than that, huh?” says Kelly. Yep, we’re sold!
