Carrot Coconut Ginger Holiday Detox Salad

Let’s face it, after the holidays we could all use a little dietary detox. The problem is a lot of us are cooked out from dinner parties, social outings, and family gatherings galore. They’re all in good fun, but when the season has passed we’re typically ready for some reprieve.

This salad is super easy and uses inexpensive ingredients (need I mention the holidays leave our wallets exhausted too?). Better yet, it’s full of dietary fiber and super-spice ginger to help get your digestion back on track. Belly bloat, goodbye!
