A mix of freshness, crunchy cabbage, quinoa, parsley, seeds and roasted capsicums and dressed simply with olive oil and lemon. These simple ingredients put together makes a very healthy yet satisfying, vibrant salad or accompaniment with grilled chicken or fish.
Cauliflower is packed with nutrition and one of my favourite ways to eat it is flavoured with turmeric and roasted to just crispy on the outside but soft in the centre. Roasting gives that smoky flavour and adds depth to the vegetable that otherwise to some can taste a little bland. Add it to a delicious rice or quinoa based salad and you have one healthy power salad.
After a huge weekend, actually I should say week of party celebrations. It was nice to get back to healthy eating and to kick off the week with a meatless Monday dish of braised lentils was just the thing I needed.
As I become more in tuned with my body and health over the past few years, I honestly do enjoy meat less meals more and more. I cannot say I am a totally converted vegetarian, though I have cautiously reduced my intake on red meat. My digestive system and over all energy has notably changed for the better.
