A HUGE Salad = Leftovers!!!

cabbagesaladI just prepped a HUGE cabbage, lettuce, kale salad.  I am pairing it with bbq’d chicken thighs, corn on cob & baked sweet potato fries.  Leftovers are key to eating clean lunches.  Make an extra big dinner tonight and enjoy the leftovers.  What’s for dinner???

Salad Ingredients:
1 head organic napa cabbage
1 small head romaine lettuce
6-8 kale leaves (tear off stems)
2 grated carrots
1 small pear
1 small apple
1/4 cup or so of sprouted pumpkin seeds
2-3 stalks of celery

Avocado oil
Local raw organic honey
Organic mustard
Juice of a lemon

Chop up all salad ingredients, whisk salad dressing, toss & serve.  The dressing lasts for a few days in the fridge in a glass container.

¥ MORE omega-3 fatty acids called alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA in 100 calories of cabbage than there is in 100 calories of salmon!
¥ Cabbage is easily digested if you lightly sauté it, so add it to your stir fry’s
¥ Contains cancer-protective phytonutrients = LOVE
