This is not so much a recipe but a full proof guide for how to make a salad which includes all your nutrition essentials!

The ideal salad includes all three Macronutrients:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Carbohydrates

Salad of mixed salad leaved, grill zucchini flowers, black beans and tamari roast almonds with a lemon and extra virgin olive oil dress. 

To create delicious and endless seasonal combinations stick to these simple rules and include the following:

Plant strong protein – I usually use beans but any legume works well.

Good healthy fat – choose avocado, nuts, seeds or a combination. 

Carbohydrates from whole food – cooked and raw veggies have the carbohydrates you need to keep you full and energised. Keep things interesting by mixing salad leaves with grilled or baked veggies.
