Anne’s Homegrown Organic Summer Salad


This salad, full of fresh, healthy ingredients, is a great way to detox during the summer if you’ve been treating yourself to ice cream, milkshakes, or any number of summer treats! There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as you consume them in moderation and compensate afterward by eating fresh and organic foods to cleanse your pallet and gut.

Several ingredients of this salad (broccoli sprouts, fresh tomato, and basil) are from my home vegetable garden. Cultivating your own food is a great way to ensure what you eat is healthy, pesticide-free, and GMO-free. Although organic foods are guaranteed pesticide-free by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), unfortunately, many crops suffer from chemical drift, where pesticides from neighboring non-organic farms drift onto organic crops. Growing food in your own backyard is the best way to ensure that it is 100% pesticide free.

The rest of the salad ingredients, all certified organic by the USDA, are full of nutrients that will nourish your body, whether or not you’ve indulged in something unhealthy. Don’t worry- there’s always a way to bounce back.

Happy Eating!
