My favourite lunch is a ginormous salad. It’s a habit I picked up from Eat to Live. Usually I like my salads pretty simple…I don’t add a lot of “stuff” to them. Although the exact contents of my salad change, my basic formula is greens of choice (usually field greens for me) + legume (for protein) + nooch/nutritional yeast + flax + sriracha.
I know what you are thinking, “sriracha on salad?!” Call me a sriracha addict (I won’t deny it…), but I really like this stuff on salad. Especially with nooch. They mix together to make this awesome sriracha-nooch paste and it’s delicious! I probably sound like a mad woman here, but if you are a fellow sriracha devotee you need to try it before you judge me.
As for my other raw veggies, typically I don’t add them to salad but I eat them separately. For example, rather than adding chopped carrot, I’d rather eat carrot sticks on the side.
Here is a recent salad that is pretty bare bones, but was utterly delicious (greens, lentil sprouts, nutritional yeast, flax, sriracha).
