Instructions

What a great salad, it’s fresh and tasty but it is also what I call light comfort food. As a combination, the chick peas and the fibre of the quinoa have that satisfying feeling. The recipe calls for combining the quinoa the chickpeas, tomatoes and black olives. Then add a wonderfully aromatic dressing and serve sprinkled with mint. Excellent in taste; quick and easy to prepare.

The colonic was one of the best experience I’ve ever had. Ela was absolutely fantastic. She is very gentle and really professional. I was feeling at ease knowing I was in perfect hands at that time. Later on I was given some good advice about a liver cleanse.
