A colorful “Treat”

Nutrition packed yummy salad

Have been so bored of the routine daal, roti, chawal type dinner so decided to do something different last night. So, grabbed myself all the veggies I had and turned it into a colorful + nutrition packed treat for my body 🙂

Here is the recipe:-

1 large red onion cut into rings

2-3 cloves of roasted garlic chopped

2 firm tomatoes cut into bite size pieces and very lightly cooked (it releases Lycopene, a strong antioxidant). Keep them  intact though. Do not over cook.

2 cucumbers cut into bite size pieces

2 carrots cut into bite size pieces and slightly steamed (easier to digest at night time)

1 packet baby spinach washed

4 eggs (boiled) or feta cheese  or handful roasted peanuts  for protein

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp pure balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon dry Italian herb mix

salt & pepper to taste

Method:

Add all the vegetables in 1 bowl. Mix olive oil, vinegar, seasonings together in a bowl and whisk till well blended. Pour this on the vegetables and mix well to coat all the veggies. Add feta cheese or roasted peanuts to the salad or take the yellow out of 2 eggs and cut the boiled egg into four and mix with the salad.

Remember protein is essential at every meal so make sure to add some form of protein in every meal and snack.

Simply having a salad with just greens will not do you any good.

Enjoy 🙂

    A new Finnish study suggests that high blood levels of lycopene, unlike those of other antioxidants, may be associated with a significantly reduced risk of stroke. Vegetables, especially tomatoes, are a significant source of lycopene.*
