Barley Lentil Apple Salad

A omnivore-approved!! My boyfriend (who enjoys both meat and vegetarian meals) states that this salad is a favourite of his – not only for it’s delicious taste but for how hearty it is! Let’s give thanks to the satiating power of a few nutrient-rich vegetarian ingredients – lentils, barley, almonds, apples and leafy greens! I love how simple and easy this is to make. A summer must-try!

Kale & Apple Salad with Goat Cheese

Time = $$! I’ve been capitalizing on easy and quick recipes recently as my life seems to be getting increasingly busy! However I still hold preparing my own meals at home to be a priority. One of the most over-looked etiologies contributing to our current state of health in Western culture is the number of meals we prepare at home.

Easy Greek Quinoa Salad

A basic but tasty quinoa salad recipe!  I’ve been making this salad for a couple of years now as a lunchtime staple and I thought it was about time to share. Nothing’s easier than this – make some quinoa, chop some vegy’s, sprinkle on some feta and add some dressing! I don’t follow a recipe for this, but I will list one for those uncomfortable not following a recipe when preparing something new (a message to you folks – live a little ;))

I love this little bowl of festive goodness. I’ve recently discovered a love for pomegranate seeds – nature’s fruit gushers! Great on their own as a snack, in smoothies or to add a lovely touch to a salad bowl like this one.
