[Recipe] Frank Giglio's Mineralized Bulky Salad


Note from Philip and Dhrumil: One of the reasons we love our My Way feature is that it really honors the fact that people incorporate live foods into their diet in many ways. You could say that appreciating everyone's own individual journey is one of our core value at We Like It Raw. Many of our readers are vegan, many are not. At the end of the day, your dietary choices are your own to make. This specific recipe contains raw milk cheese as an option. If that's not your thing, feel free to leave it out. Much love.

Mineralized Bulky Salad by Frank Giglio

This recipe often serves as staple when on the road when options are slim and dense nutrition is a must. The combined ingredients make for a complete and well rounded meal. With the chlorella you get a complete protein. The dulse provides essential minerals while the raw cheese provides valuable vitamins. The fermented veggies element promotes digestion and helps to build healthy gut flora. Wild picked greens give us properties unseen in conventional or even organic produce. Prepared with love and served with a purpose, the end result is a flavorful and life giving salad that will heal and nourish the body. Enjoy!
