I have a couple of large, lightweight stainless steel bowls that I work with. One sits in my lap filled with whatever I’m working with. The other sits next to me for the finished product.
Cilantro – Cilantro is a great liver detoxer. Picking the leaves individually from the stem leaves you with some pretty awesome ready to use flavoring. Make sure the leaves are dry before you start so that when they are stored, you get maximum life from them.
Garlic – This aromatic vegetable is a great prebiotic and has tremendous anti-bacterial qualities. If I have to clean it EVERY time I want to use it, I don’t always include it in my dish. Once peeled, it stores well in a glass jar in the fridge for weeks.
Kale – This is a good time for stem removal for those who prefer to have just the leaves when consuming kale.
Broccoli – Trim and cut it down into bite sized pieces
Asparagus – Snapping the woody ends off before cooking
