French Green Lentil Detox Salad

It's a new year, and many of us have health-related resolutions.  To help your body repair and reset, try eating more detoxifying veggies.  This French Lentil Detox Salad is a great start!

Detox Salad with Farmer Direct French Green Lentils

This salad, created for us by Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table, is filled with color and plant-based protein.  It has another benefit in that it offers naturally detoxifying ingredients, such as:

  • Lentils are packed with fiber, protein, and minerals. French lentils are a blood-sugar-stabilizing and heart-healthy energy source. 
  • Cabbage is filled with vitamin k, vitamin c, and manganese.  It is also a cholesterol-lowering, digestion-friendly vegetable.
  • Beets are a high-antioxidant vegetable that contains a number of nutrients that have been shown to be cleansing and detoxifying.
  • Parsley is an excellent source of flavonoid antioxidants.  The leaf helps improve digestion and acts as a natural diuretic to help to relieve bloating.
This French Green Lentil Detox Salad is packed full of detoxifying ingredients!
