Apple, Celery & Oak Leaf Lettuce Salad 

Crispy apple & celery slices, red + green oak leaf lettuces topped with walnuts and thyme sprigs—a fresh & simple autumnal salad.


I like to serve this with my lemony dijon mustard salad dressing, as it adds a little warmth to aid digestion.  It tastes great sprinkled with walnuts, Immune Supportive Seed Snack or toasted nuts, shaved hard cheeses or crumbled soft cheeses.

  • High Fibre

    High fibre foods are an important part of a healthy digestive system. Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are high in fibre.

  • Anti Inflammatory

    Recipes have ingredients with anti-inflammatory nutrients and avoid common inflammatory foods like sugar, gluten, dairy and processed food. A whole food diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods can help relieve symptoms of inflammation within the body. Inflammation is at the root of most disease = dis-ease.

    Recipes have blood sugar balancing and low glycemic index ingredients. A diet rich in foods that balance blood sugar helps lower risks of type 2 diabetes.
