Here”s a simple and refreshing salad recipe that bumps up the protein, micronutrients & phytochemicals. What are those last two you might ask? Micronutrients are organic compounds the body requires in small amounts (vitamin & minerals) and phytochemicals found in plants can help protect humans from disease. That”s good stuff!
DIRECTIONS: Place all ingredients in large salad bowl. Mix & serve! Makes 3-4 servings
Want a fresh dinner idea? Try having shrimp as your protein & arugula as your greens. Shrimp has roughly 23g of protein and only 1 carb for a 4oz serving! Arugula is a peppery green that is paired well with a lemony vinaigrette. Combine the two and you'll have a great meal!
