There are certain people in the Holistic Nutrition industry that I have major girl crushes on. One of them is Joy McCarthy of Joyous Health. Joy and I have the same education from IHN and to walk in to Chapters across the country and see her book featured at the entrance is pretty cool, I’d say! I have both of Joy’s books, including her new one Joyous Detox and she has graciously offered to give a copy of this new book to one lucky winner!
Pssst - If you didn’t know, we’re celebrating HEAL’s 3rd birthday by running a week of giveaways on the HEAL Instagram account (click here to follow along).
The word “detox” can be thrown around quite a bit and sometimes has a negative connotation around it. Maybe you think of detox and think of a juice cleanse or eating nothing but raw kale? What I love about Joy’s book is that it’s nothing like that, but still full of recipes and ingredients that use whole foods to support your body’s natural detoxification processes and have you feeling really good. Plus, her food photos are phenomenal and I literally want to make every recipe in the book!!!
Today, I’m sharing the Salmon Quinoa Cakes with Lemon Dressing recipe, one of the deeeelish detox recipes from her new book.
Lemon Tahini Sauce:
Some brands of quinoa require you to rinse before cooking and then rinse again after cooking to remove any bitter saponins. If your quinoa is labelled "pre-washed", you can skip this step.
