As a part of the "Get Fit with Me" Series with Nour Kaiss (Founder of Souqina App), we are sharing another healthy recipe this week!
Nour was looking for a lunch idea that is healthy but also simple and something she can make ahead. Like many people, Nour has a busy schedule and doesn't always have time to prepare lunch everyday. The solution? Salad in a jar.
A salad in a jar is exactly like it sounds. This is far from your basic salad...it is a mixture of delicious ingredients to provide you with a filling lunch. In order to get the most out of your lunch, you want to make sure you are getting a good amount of protein, carbohydrates, and fat.
This salad in a jar is:
High in plant based protein
High in fibre
Good source of complex, whole grain carbohydrates
High in Folate, Vitamin C, K, and B vitamins
This recipe is an excellent source of plant based protein, as most of the protein in this recipe comes from the quinoa and chickpeas. Protein is essential...
