Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a very tasty summer salad that is full of flavor and nutrients. It is super hydrating, alkalizing and refreshing and will give you a great quick burst of energy! Pecans, avocados and olive oil are rich in anti-oxidants and healthy monounsaturated fats.
Blackberries are rich in anthocyanin anti-oxidants that protect the body from UV radiation stress which is super important for those of us that enjoy getting out in the sun during the summer. This nutrient (also found in other berries, red onions, red cabbage, etc.) is also very protective for the body as it helps reduce oxidative stress from environmental radiation from EMF’s and pollutants.
The lemon and apple cider vinegar provide anti-oxidants, enzymes and organic acids that help the body metabolize and absorb the nutrients more effectively. It also helps lower the blood sugar response from the mango.
This is a great salad to have if you want more energy and to recover from the stressors of the sun and heat. Try it out and let us know how you enjoyed it in the comments section below!
