fresh squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, red (cayenne) pepper flakes, and
a touch of salt in a large bowl! Let marinate for a few hours or
overnight. This is a very tasty salad with a potent punch of
vitamins as EVERY ingredients is a power house of its own!
Garlic - Boosts our
natural supply of hydrogen sulfide which acts as an antioxidant and
transmits cellular signals that relax blood vessels and increase
blood flow. Protects against various cancers, including
breast, prostate and colon cancer.
Cooking Tip: Many home chefs
mistakenly cook garlic immediately after crushing or chopping it,
added Dr. Kraus. To maximize the health benefits, you should crush
the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15
minutes. That triggers an enzyme reaction that boosts the healthy
compounds in garlic. While individual reactions to garlic
vary, eating fennel seeds helps to neutralize the smell.
Lemon Juice -
Alkaline in the body, antibacterial, vitamin A. Natural vitamin C is
much more effective than the synthetic one. Vitamin C of lemon-juice
is very effective because it is combined with bioflavonoids (vitamin
P). In addition to Vitamin C, lemon also contains niacin and thiamin
Olive Oil - Lowers

clotting, benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control,
