What do you do when you are on the go and need a quick healthy meal? Sometimes I’m running errands and going in between meetings to meetings and I need a salad filled with goodies but no restaurant or cafe has the right combination of greens and proteins. I go to Whole Foods!
I love the access to so many different grains, legumes, proteins, and veggies. No prep necessary, just grab, toss, and eat. So here is a great salad recipe of mine, using Whole Foods salad bar.
Super Quinoa Kale Salad
roasted yellow beets
shredded carrots (yellow and orange)
Toss: everything together with a dash of braggs, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Voila! You’ve got yourself a super duper salad packed with so many veggies you would never be able to prep at home in less than 5 minutes. You can basically create an amazing meal under 5 minutes, eat and move on to your next errand under 15 minutes. That beats any wait or stop at a fast food joint and your choices at those places are far worse!
