I start off my day with a glass of lukewarm water added with honey and apple cider vinegar. This helps me detoxify early in the morning. It will also help in building immunity against allergies and other illnesses. You should also try and do this in the morning, it will help you get healthy.
When we talk about healthy food recipes, we often think of salads only. Salads are only part of a balanced diet. You would need more than salads to keep you stay healthy.
