Sprout Salad with Tofu ingredients:
Cucumbers are the perfect summer veggie that keeps your body hydrated, strong, and happy. They hydrate your body and help to flush out toxins. They are good for treating high blood pressure and for weight loss and may help fight cancer and reduce the risk of heart disease. They are highly alkaline-forming and may help reduce cholesterol and help with diabetes. An important ingredient for this healthy sparkling cucumber lemon water.
Arugula with its aromatic, peppery flavour adds a wonderful dimension to a salad and to your sex life too. It is also known by other names such as salad rocket, garden rocket, roquette, rucola, rugula, or colewort. It is creat for cleansing and detoxifying the body as well as reducing inflammation.
Tofu adds a vegan protein which is actually good for us. Tofu is made by coagulating soy milk and pressing the resulting curds. It is a good source of protein, is gluten-free, contains no cholesterol and is low in calories. You can get tofu in most health food stores; it is also Bean Curd and can be bought in Chinese markets. Make sure it is organic and not GMO.
The red of Tomatoes is what makes them full of health benefits, even when you are enjoying them as a refreshing juice or tomato sauce. Tomatoes are fat burning, help prevent cancer and are very heart-healthy food
Celery is a negative calorie food, meaning it takes the body more calories to digest it than the food itself contains making it a very good food for weight loss. One stalk of celery has only a few calories because it is full of healthy cellulose. It is 95% water, very alkaline and filled with fiber. Its weight loss benefits are well known but you would be surprised at its other amazing properties.
