This tasty salad is full of ingredients that have a reputation of being very good for health. The mango is hydrating, the broccoli is high in vitamin C, the ginger boosts immunity, the walnuts have omega 3, the apple cider vinegar supposedly prevents nasty problems and the curry-like spices jump start it all!
But I think what really helps to keep us from experiencing disagreeable maladies is the kindnesses we extend to others, the positive thoughts we have and the love in our hearts. No doubt, it’s hate and the inability to see another’s viewpoint that makes us sick!
So join me in letting go of old resentments and please- let me know if you enjoyed this yummy side dish!
