YogaLean Recipe: Lemon Garlic Artichoke Salad

YogaLean Recipe: Lemon Garlic Artichoke Salad

by Beth Shaw | 2/05/2016

In one artichoke, we reap lean benefits from its diuretic properties, along with its anti-oxidants, which support a strong immune system, which in turn will help us stay healthy for exercise. Among its abundance of benefits, garlic is a detoxifier that triggers the liver to release toxins from the body—a great aid to maintaining a healthy and lean stomach.

What You'll Need:

5 TBSP FRESHLY SQUEEZED LEMON JUICE

1/4 CUP OLIVE OIL

1/2 TSP SEA SALT

1 TSP FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER

1/4 CUP PARSLEY

3 CLOVES GARLIC, DICED

12 BABY ARTICHOKES—FROZEN OR CANNED, CHOPPED

6 CUPS MIXED GREENS

MAKE IT LEAN:

1. In a blender, blend the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, parsley, and garlic until smooth and thick, approximately 2 to 3 minutes.

 

2. Toss dressing with artichokes and serve over mixed greens.

 

Enjoy!
