A favorite easy recipe of mine, is a simple nutrient loaded spinach salad. I LOVE to crunch! So I put raw almonds & sesame seeds on my salad. Then I'll add 1/3 cup of black beans (or beans of your liking) sliced greens onions, & 1/2 avocado. And you're done! My favorite vegan Caesar spin off dressing is from Dr. Greger's book "How Not to Die" (pg 319) Originally from Dr. Klaper of the TrueNorth Health Center:
2 tablespoons almond meal
3 cloves crushed garlic
3 tablespoons dijon mustard
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 tablespoons white miso
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup water
Mix & Enjoy!
Another FAVORITE is making wheat berries. I buy in bulk and store in a mason jar. Make a big batch and store in your refrigerator. Scoop 1/2 a cup from your container and put on your salad. Gives it a nice chewy consistency while adding protein and fiber.
1/2 cup cooked wheat berries offers: 6.5 grams of protein, 35.5 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of dietary fiber with only 1 gram of sodium and fat. Delicious!
