Fresh cranberries are powerfully antibacterial but function differently from antibiotics. Rather than killing harmful bacteria, they simply flush them out of the body.
Dijon mustard is the traditional mustard of France made from black and brown mustard seeds and white wine. It is both more intense and has a more complex flavor than typical yellow mustard.
Goat cheese: unlike cow’s milk cheese varieties that grow stronger and more pungent with age, cheeses made with goat’s milk get milder and sweeter as they mature.
Enzymes in fresh lemon juice accelerate the digestive process. Even though lemon juice is acidic, it actually has an alkalizing effect on the body.
Pure olive oil is high in nutrients including vitamins D, E, K, and A as well as omega-3 fatty acids. For the highest quality, look for organic extra virgin olive oil in dark glass bottles or tins that have an expiry date.
With the Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens in this recipe, you not only get 5 different types of collagen, but also camu camu, acerola cherry, horsetail extract (silica), and zinc gluconate to ensure your body can actually USE the collagen you’re taking.
Raw honey is a good source of many vitamins and is rich in antioxidants. Its antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties can help improve overall immune function.
While from the same family, shallots have a milder taste and smell than onions and are often eaten raw due to their delicate flavor. Shallots have twice the protein and almost twice the natural sugar and carbs of onion.
Smoked salmon is an excellent source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. However, it contains more sodium than fresh salmon.
Walnuts are neuroprotective and support heart health. They are loaded with antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, molybdenum, and biotin.
