An Easy Way To Get Your 12 Daily Servings Of Vegetables

The nervous system coordinates and controls just about every function in your body. Chiropractors adjust the spine. They do this because the movement of your spine has such a profound affect on your nervous system, and hence your general health.

Wellness chiropractors look at all the ways your lifestyle habits either promote a healthy spinal-neural system, or detract from it.  It comes down to two simple concepts: purity and sufficiency.

One of the best things you can do for your spinal-neural system is to eat lots of fresh vegetables. But because our soils are depleted, and most fruits and vegetables have only a fraction of the nutrients they did years ago, the federal government now recommends that we get 12 servings of fresh vegetables every day. Wow, that's a lot!

An easy way to add several servings of fresh vegetables to your diet is with the "Innate Salad." Take an array of vegetables (roots, greens, etc.), chop them into thumbnail-sized bits in your food processor, top with the juice of a couple lemons, and store in your refrigerator.  Now you're ready to add a dollop of your Innate Salad as either a side dish to your meal, or to your green salad.

Bon appetit!
