Build Your Own Salad Bowl

I know sometimes you feel like you have to be a master chef to make a great dinner. I want to take that thought right out of your head 😉 Imagine a stress-free dinner any night of the week. Well,  I’m going to show how to do that! Stop seeing your salad as a side dish and make it your entree by building a salad bowl with greens, veggies, fats, gluten-free grains, proteins, superfoods and more.

You will be creating your own masterpiece by choosing a variety of the ingredients below or lay it out buffet style, and let your family “cook up” their own combo!

Step 1:

Create Your Base

Use a mixture of dark leafy greens  & nutrient rich sprouts – this build a base rich in phytochemicals

Dark leafy greens (BroccoLeaf

kale, swiss chard, spinach, arugula)

Romaine

Bitter greens (beet greens, mustard greens, dandelion)

Broccoli sprouts

Pea shoots

Fresh herbs (cilantro, parsley, basil, tarragon)

Step 2:

Add Healthy Fats

You need healthy fats to feel full, better absorb nutrients, and provide essential fatty acids your body can only get through foods

Pumpkin, avocado, or walnut oil

Extra virgin olive oil

Avocado

Olives

Wild Salmon (broiled, grilled, or even smoked)

Anchovies or Sardines

Pumpkin Seeds

Walnuts

Almonds

Step 3:

Don’t Forget Protein

Protein is essential fuel for our muscles, keeps cravings away, and keeps us satiated

Hemp seeds

Organic edamame

Lentils

Quinoa

Pumpkin seeds

Kidney, black, pinto, garbanzo, or cannellini beans

Grilled organic chicken

Sauteed stir fry meat

Grilled wild fish (salmon, Arctic Char, Trout, sole)

Step 4:

Load Up on Your Veggies – Vegetables are low in fat and calories, but rich in vitamins, minerals, and phyto-chemicals.  Veggies are the best foods to eat for cancer prevention!

Squash

Brussels sprouts

Kohlrabi

Mushrooms

Turnips

Step 6:

Bonus: Add Minerals

Step 7:

Add a leftover/side (or cook something right then to use) – An easy way to add more flavors and use up leftovers.  You can serve cold or warmed – your choice.

Vegan Cashew or Almond Cheese

Gluten free grains (millet, quinoa, brown rice)

Roasted vegetables
