Here at The Bach we know you want to look your best at all of your upcoming wedding related events. (Trust us- we do too!) Fortunately there are tons of tasty summer salads to try that are both nutritious and great for the waistline. Enough with using the same standard veggies and dressings, that just gets boring! It’s time to shake up your salad game, and add some pizzaz to your healthy lunches and dinners.
1. Asian Quinoa Salad
So fresh, so light, and so colorful- a true summer salad! Taste the rainbow. This salad is packed with red cabbage, edamame, carrots, red pepper, cucumbers, and cilantro- providing you with a full days worth of nutritious veggies. We’re crazy about quinoa this summer. Not only is it gluten free and bursting with necessary vitamins (B-vitamins, potassium, calcium, to name a few…) but it is one of the only few plant based proteins that’s considered a complete protein. Meaning you will feel full quicker, and blast belly fat in no time… hello beach bod!
