Different foods hold different energies that can support the body in many different ways.
There are warming foods, cooling foods, grounding foods, soothings foods… all of them unique with their many health benefits.
This is my Earthing Salad, given this name mainly due to the root vegetables within the ingredient list which help to ground us as individuals.
This salad is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo, Grain Free, Primal, Vegan, Sugar Free, Raw

This salad was paired deliciously with some grilled fish but you could use any protein that you fancy
