Look no further for your bomb-@$$ salad! This baby is so good. And medicinal. Here are just 5 reasons why this salad needs to GET IN YOUR BELLY:
1. Vitamin C + Iron Combo
Vitamin C is needed for peak absorption of plant based iron. So the vitamin C from the orange and lime in the dressing combined with all of these iron packed greens?! Watch out world, you’re blood is builllttt!
2. Bones of STEEL
Plant based sources of calcium: kale, collards, sesame seeds, oranges… they are all great sources! Throw them all together and you are left with nothing but a mineral dense delicious meal fit for a superhero.
3. Anti-inflammatory + Protein
Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory aid, shown to help not only with stomach issues, but migraines, arthritis, and any kind of ache or pain. It is truly a great go-to cure all.
4. Protein + Fiber Packed
Did you know that 50% of calories from green leafys is from protein? Plus, sesame seeds have more protein per weight than any other nut or seed. Protein and fiber are important to turn off hunger hormones. Plus healthy sources of fat (sesame, walnuts) help curb cravings a lot too. So this salad will get you shredded baby. Yes, shredded.
5. Simple, Fresh, Versatile
Make this dressing with whatever ingredients you have on hand. No sesame? Use cashews or hemp instead. Or whatever seed or nut you have on hand honestly. This is delicious with mint, basil, or dill instead of cilantro, and can be used as a dip, filling, or topping for any plant based burger, falafel ball, or, even throw a banana in and drink as a smoothie?! The sky is the limit. Enjoy 🙂
