🌱 Kale, Quinoa, & Berry Salad with a Lemon Dijon Dressing (recipe link in bio). As the weather warms up, our body desires more 💦 hydrating foods, and salads are a great way of doing this. However, we want to ensure that our salads are properly balanced with protein, fiber, and carbs to give us the energy we need for our busy summer activities.
You can keep it interesting by swapping the fruits, nuts, seeds, and carbs around. I like to mealprep prep a pot of quinoa on Sunday so that way I have some cold in the fridge all week for a quick plant-based protein to add to salads and dishes as I need.
Some have a hard time digesting kale or are not typically a fan of kale, it's important to "massage" your kale with some lemon 🍋 first to help break down the fibers. This makes kale easier to digest and less bitter in flavor.
