Serious about Salads: Try the Vegetable Challenge!

Can you do the vegetable challenge?

‘What’s the vegetable challenge?’ I hear you ask…. Well, it involves two large salads everyday, thats’s all! Salads are really the most versatile and healthy option there is and you can get as creative as you like. My rule is the base should be greens, (cos lettuce, romaine or mini gems work very well) I then usually mix this with a bit of spinach or darker greens for more minerals. Fill your bowl with greens then add your toppings….

I recommend:

Beetroot, avocado, sweetcorn (organic), Quinoa, beans, lentils, sweet potato, dairy free pesto, dairy free mayo, tofu pieces, hummus….

Some ideas:
