#1 Superfood Salad
Whether you’re a long time vegan or open to trying a vegan/vegetarian diet for the first time, it’s important to ensure that you are getting the right amount of protein and nutrients into your body. According to the Dietary Reference Intake, you may need up to 0.8 grams of protein per day for every kilogram you weigh, depending on age and other factors.
This yummy recipe provides the protein you need from superfood, plant-based ingredients.
#2 Salmon BowlFor the carnivores in the house, we have to make sure we’re consuming healthy and consciously-sourced animal protein. Salmon contains vital nutrients such as B vitamins that increase energy, reduce inflammation, and literally build brain cells.
It’s important to match the nutritious omega 3 fatty acids in the salmon with a good source of carbohydrates, so that they can work together to provide you with the energy you need now and give your body the ability to store the rest for later. That’s why I add plenty of veggies and good grains to any dish with an animal-based protein.
This salmon bowl recipe checks all the boxes!
(If you’re on a Keto or other low-carb diet, this is an easy one to adjust to your specific needs!)
So as the days get hotter and longer, why not add a tasty treat to your midday routine? This smoothie is packed with gut-healing ingredients that taste as good as they are good for you!
