Tip of the Day: Save with Super Salads
No more ignoring the meager lingering produce lying around your kitchen before you announce that the family will be eating out for dinner. And forget about running to the grocery store while perfectly good leftovers go to waste, upstaged by all the new goods unpacked right in front of them (as if they weren’t even there). Instead, use what you’ve got. You paid for it, right? Learn to make delicious, hearty super salads and save with every savory bite.
Here is a quick Heart-Smart Super Salad RecipeMonica M. in Los Angeles whipped up for her family the other day. I’m so grateful she shared it. It’s full of protein and a variety of vitamins and minerals; it has no added salt or fat, yet you’ll find it absolutely filling and packed with flavor!
What I love best about Monica’s recipe above is that you can make it your own. My daughter is allergic to soy, so I can substitute the edamame with organic beans, or even chicken or salmon (we’re carnivores). And I just cooked a fresh batch of quinoa; therefore, this hearty salad will be on the menu! Bon appetit!
