Since the beginning of isolation my food intake and eating patterns have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride.
I LOVE having constant access to my kitchen and the ability to make and create meals on the fly. But on the other hand, it has also meant that at times I can feel a bit lazy with my food choices and fall out of my beloved routine (I love routine)...
You guys are always asking me for recipes, and I don't usually write them because I am a little hopeless at measurements when it comes to cooking! However I thought sharing this template for a yummy lunch time throw-together-salad would be useful for you.
This recipe is my GO-TO when I am feeling both lazy and hungry for some nourishing nutrition, so here goes...
Easy Breezy Isolation Salad Recipe
Microwave brown rice or quinoa as the base (or left overs if you are prepared!)
Diced vegetables you have on hand - cherry tomatoes, capsicum, grated carrot
Fresh greens - spinach or rocket
Seeds of choice - hemp, sunflower or pumpkin
Dressing - I used a homemade dressing or simply use olive oil and/or apple cider vinegar
Dried cranberries (I am obsessed with these in a salad!)
Optional extras - chicken, walnuts, feta, goats cheese, legumes or beans
Microwave or heat your base of brown rice or quinoa
Drizzle dressing or olive oil and season if you wish
Add your vegetables !
Top with greens and seeds
Enjoy outside if possible :)
Super easy, a great way to use what you have, takes NO time and is DELICIOUS!
