This salad contains olives, olive oil and avocado. They're the good kind of fats. Fat often has a bad reputation, but it's the kind of fat we're consuming that's important.

Good quality fat is essential when it comes to balancing hormones, improving mood, memory, cognitive function, and skin health.Every cell membrane is made up of lipids and the body needs fat to function effectively. Fats help the body to absorb essential vitamins and form the building blocks of our hormones.

Artichokes are often a staple in my salads. They're not only high in fibre, but they contain compounds that help support the liver's natural detoxification pathways. Artichoke is also widely used as a cholagogue. A cholagogue is a substance that promotes the flow of bile from the gallbladder into the duodenum (part of the small intestine). This helps to remove harmful toxins from your liver
