Salad Bowl

photo-7

Salad bowls are a super easy and fun way to eat your veggies. There’s no recipe to follow – just toss whatever veggies, salad, nuts, or seeds you want into a bowl, and you’ve got yourself a nice salad. You may also wish to sprinkle the salad with dressing of your choice. You can also add eggs, guacamole, or hummus, to make it a more filling salad.

For this particular salad, I used the following ingredients:

Kale

Spinach

Tomatoes

Red cabbage

cucumbers

carrots

chia seeds

flax seeds

pumpkin seeds

guacamole

Baked Eggs with Kale and Leeks

This recipe is absolutely delicious and healthy. Full of vitamins and protein! Kale and leek are great winter vegetables, but hopefully spring is coming soon! I adapted this recipe from Foolproof Living – it’s a great idea for a quick meal.
