A Salad and a Shake

Just wanted to share one of my favorite salads and smoothies with many health benefits.

The salad:
-1/2 cup Quinoa
-3 cups lettuce of your choice or mix of different lettuces (I used Savory, Lola Rosa and Kale)
-3 Cucumbers
-1/4 cup Cilantro
-1/2 cup Heirloom Tomatoes
-1 Avocado
-1 Lemon for Dressing
-Olive Oil to taste
-Salt and Pepper to taste

Smoothie:
-2 Medium sized Bananas
-2 Tablespoons Vanilla Hemp Protein
-1 cup Frozen mixed organic Berries
-1 1/2 cup water or Coconut water
-1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
-2 Tablespoons Dry Oats
-2 Teaspoons Spirulina

If you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant, this salad and smoothie together are for you! The salad provides a lot of folic acid which is essential during pregnancy. Avocado, any leafy greens contain lots of Folic Acid. The smoothie has Spirulina which helps with fertility and strawberries which also have Folic Acid.

Give Savory a try.

Savory has many health benefits such as anti-oxidants, helps reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) while increasing levels of good cholesterol (HDL). It is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals such as Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Vitamins A, and C and helps control blood pressure.

And they taste great 🙂
