3 Greens Cesar Salad

Three Greens Cesar Salad

I am HUGE Fan of Cesar Salad. However, unlike most salads, it doesn’t have quite as many health benefits because there are no added veggies and usually the only source of nutrition is the lettuce.

Quinoa is great because it is a full protein and it contains all the amino acids. Basically, it is REALLY good for you. Continue reading

I absolutely LOVE this salad. It is flavourful, colourful, and it definitely inspired me to be healthier. Honestly I never liked or wanted to try zucchini before, but I am glad I did. It adds a simple sweet flavour to balance out the tangy lemon, and the juicy tomatoes.  This takes hardly any time to make which leaves more time to enjoy the food. All you have to do is slice up a bunch of ingredients and throw them in a bowl. I was inspired to make this salad when I saw a picture on Pinterest (follow Chef Material on Pinterest) and the minute I saw it I knew I had to recreate it. The salad I created for you is made to be simple and refreshing. If you find yourself eating lots of heavy, salty, or sugary foods, this is a great salad to refresh your pallet give you a nutrition boost. *See bonus recipe at the end* Continue reading
