I was starving today. I woke up around 8:30am, which is sleeping late for me. But I stayed in bed until around noon. Needless to say when I managed to roll myself out of bed, I realized, I hadn't gone grocery shopping or planned my meals for next week! *yikes* Which meant that, I really didn't have much for options to eat RIGHT NOW! ...And the bear in my tummy was growling!!! So I managed to whip up this handy dandy simple salad from left overs in my fridge...
|Avocado Spring Salad and Carrot-Aid Juice|
- 5 oz of Organic Spring Salad Mix
- 1 Avocado
- A little NOT-cho cheese /or/ Tahini Salad Dressing
- 1 tsp chia seeds (optional)
- 1 tsp hemp seeds (optional)
- 1 tsp flax seeds (optional)
I literally put salad in bowl, chopped my avocado and then poured my NOT-cho Cheese on top...then I sprinkled a little chia seeds, hemp seeds and flax seeds on top. This added extra protein, amino's and omega 3's!
I was tired and lazy before this salad, now I seriously have a little energy...I think I'll manage to make my way by the pool side with a book, now! I hope you all have a beautiful Memorial Day!

I usually keep a little seed mix in my pantry. I sprinkle it on fruit and salad very often. It's a great way to get added protein, when you need that extra boost. So here's what I do, I mix 1/4 cup of each: chia seed, hemp seed and flax seed...put them in a container and shake them to mix them up. Then you have a great little sprinkle for your light meals.
