John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shows you how to make a salad that is 10x more nutritious than a standard iceberg lettuce salad that most Americans eat.
In this episode, you will learn about OutREDgeous Lettuce which was grown on the space station that has 10x more antioxidants than standard green lettuce.
You will learn the importance of growing red and purple crops in your garden due to the power of the anthocyanins that are health protective for us but also protects the plants from stress.
You will discover how John uses his red lettuce to make the healthiest salad ever using a base of his homegrown red lettuce, purple carrots, beets, brown tomatoes, and purple cabbage as well as a homemade blood orange macadamia nut dressing made in the Kuvings Commercial Vacuum Blender.
