As we start off 2018, we know many of you have resolutions about being more healthy, losing weight, feeling better, or eating more vegetables! We wanted to arm you with a simple recipe that is easy to make ahead and can be used as a filling lunch option in the office or as a quickly put together dinner on weeknights when time is a valuable resource. A quick reminder first too about what the ideal plate looks like for future reference and as a guideline for keeping those resolutions!
Dr. Danenberg’s tips to a healthy plate of food:
more that 50% non-starchy vegetables
less than 25% healthy animal protein with its healthy fat
less than 25% nuts, seeds, small starchy vegetable, and/or healthy fruit

Easy, Nutrient Dense Salad
Mustard greens, chopped
Sardines, bone-in and skin-on
Sauerkraut, live culture
Pumpkin seeds and almonds, raw and soaked overnight

Put in bowl and enjoy! How easy is that?
