After the holidays we are going to try to eat lighter, even if it is difficult with the cold weather which is coming and the galette des rois (French desert made with almond paste that we call Frangipane to celebrate the 3 kings) making its entrance! I will post a few light recipes but there will be a good galette around. In the meantime here is a detox salad with fennel and red cabbage. The fennel is the perfect ally in the fight against difficult digestions. It has also vitamins and elements such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron. Associated with the cabbage that is a good source of vitamin C but also rich in mineral salts, here is the ideal salad to boost this beginning of the year!
