Whilst the rain clouds may have other ideas, it’s still officially summer, and that means salad season. Lots of my clients tell me that whilst they like eating salads, they’re running out of ideas, and when I look at food diaries I see lots of the same traditional – lettuce, cucumber and tomato salads cropping up. As well as getting a bit boring, these often lack protein and a range of different coloured veg – 2 of the key parts to a balanced diet, as those of you who are following my ‘Seven Steps to Weight Loss success’, will know.
So I thought I’d share a few of my salads from the last few days here to give you some new ideas. If you’ve got other suggestions, please do share them below.
Ward off colds with this vitamin packed mix of salad leaves with butter nut squash and its seeds, beetroot, grapefruit and goats cheese.
Quinoa, a great source of veggie protein, with crunchy steamed veg, topped with some roasted almonds and a spicy dressing.
Super quick and simple to make and looks and tastes great.
Even a traditional green salad can be made a bit more exciting and nutritious with the addition of a few extra ingredients.
