It’s almost impossible to escape the buzz about the benefits of moving towards a plant-based diet. Bill Clinton adopted a plant-based diet, lost weight, reversed his heart disease and re-gained his health. Famed NY Times food writer, Mark Bittman, adopted a plant-based diet, dropped 36 pounds and avoided a health disaster. Moving towards a more plant-based diet can have huge health benefits for us all…but how do we get enough protein?
Everyone loves recipes that are easy and quick to put together, healthy, and versatile in how you can use them. In honor of May being National Salad Month, I have two new salads for you. The first, a colorful, flavorful Southwestern Black Bean Salad. The second, which I’ll post soon, is a new “green” quinoa salad recipe with spinach, cucumber and herbs.
