Orange Pine Nut Salad with Avocado
The Burn uses food to target specific conditions that may be keeping you from optimal health: inflammation, digestive issues and/or hormonal imbalances. The targeted recipes I use in the book are therapeutic, but also delicious. This Orange Pine Nut Salad with Avocado is one of my H-Burn recipes.
The H-Burn is a 10-day plan designed to help you zero-in on stubborn white fat as you target your liver, gallbladder and thyroid to normalize hormone function and boost metabolism.
Here are some signals that your body may need the 10-Day H-Burn:
- Is your hair dry and crispy?
- Is fat accumulating in places you’ve never had it before?
- Is your libido MIA?
- Do you crave simple carbs like flour-based and sugar-based foods?
- Do you feel moody, irritable or weepy?
If these sound familiar, the H-Burn may be the tonic you need. To learn more about the Burn and how each of its mini-plans can help you bust through plateaus and propel your health and metabolism forward, click here.
