Combine some grated carrot and spinach, great providers of beta carotene which can boost the immune system and promote the protection, maintenance and repair of some cells and tissue. Add to this some spinach, watercress and avocado, which have excellent moisturising and anti-aging properties for tired skin. Pop in some sweet corn, lambs lettuce, cucumber, spring onion and plum tomatoes and dress with some extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve with smoked salmon or tuna, for your brain power boosting omega-3 as well as amino acids and protein, and a boiled egg for selenium, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect against harmful free radicals.

Complement your perfect salad with a glass of pressed mango and apple juice and within half an hour, you will start to feel the benefits.
