This is an easy and perfect lunch bowl for me. Mineral rich wild rice with fresh vegetables and walnuts tossed with cleansing parsley and drizzled with a citrusy/mustardy dressing. Recipes this simple make ideal lunches for me – I am able to add in a lot of nutrients without feeling fatigued after eating and it feels so good to eat this way. You have the option of adding additional plant or animal protein if desired, sometimes I top with a few pieces of crisp tempeh bacon or organic chicken breast when I need a bit more substance.
