Ever since I watched the movie Idiocracy, I can’t see or hear the word “electrolyte” without cringing. But like I said before, we’ve been super dehydrated lately. As it turns out, it really is idiotic to ignore your electrolyte balance.
But there’s no need to drink artificially-colored beverages, we can make our own vitamin waters and we can make this bomb salad.
Chop, chop, mix, mix and that’s it. You’re but a spoonful away from restoring the mineral balance in your body.
Make it the night before for a lovely raw, vegan lunch.
