Kale, Quinoa and Avocado Salad
Organic Kale, Quinoa and Avocado Salad
If you’re trying to eat a satisfying meal that is extremely healthy, requires little to no stove time and will make your body very happy, try this salad. Finding a salad that can truly suffice as a meal, even if you’re an adult active male, can be tricky, but this one definitely fits the bill. It’s extremely filling and healthy and yes, this is based on testing.Hint: when I cook quinoa or Quorn, I frequently make extra so that I can have some on hand for these great salads. When you say “salad” to most Americans they think of iceberg lettuce, perhaps a slice of tomato and some cucumber. It’s definitely the opposite of filling unless it’s drenched in a fatty dressing such as Ranch – the opposite of healthy, for sure.In this salad we have all the very best ingredients and they combine to make a very satisfying meal. You can alter the amount of ingredients you’re using to suit who you are feeding, but I give approximations below to get you started.
Let me know how you enjoy it!
