This category of easy healthy salad recipes will be the most important food you eat to boost your immune system naturally and to prevent and reverse disease. These foods should make up the bulk of your diet for very best health. As you bring the body from an acid state (caused from an unhealthy diet and lifestyle) to an alkaline state, raw vegetables and fruit will begin to taste better and better. The best suggestion for keeping this food interesting and appealing is to have a variety of recipes and dressings on hand. So here are some great starting recipes.
