This is one hell of an excuse for a recipe, more like a lazy hack/salad idea I'd like to share with you to help keep your food tasty and exciting.
As creatures of habit, it's easy to put similar things in the shopping basket each week and roll out the same dishes day in and day out. Although easy, it can get boring and you may be missing out some key nutrients or the oppourtunity to feed your gut bugs some new and exciting food (which will keep them happy).
For salad inspiration, try these recipes:
One dietary suggestion to ensure this diversity in your diet is to aim for 40+ different whole foods per week. What is meant by this is different fruits vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, spices, proteins etc.
Forty may seem like a high number to reach (I certainly know there are weeks I may only reach 25-30), but trust me, it will be super easy with this salad topper idea.
