Salads? Heck yeah! Contrary to popular belief, there's more to salads than a bunch of leafy greens. I myself used to never eat salads because I though they tasted gross and was just a bunch of grass mixed together (don't judge me haha). All of this has changed since taking on a plant-based diet and my knowledge about the vast kinds of salads out there has increased. I know, I know, I'm getting a bit cray cray about a salad- but come on, I'm a healthy foodie and salads = veggies + grains and that is the equivalent to a match made in heaven. The recipe below was pretty much whatever I had at hand and oh my, it was so much better than I expected. It includes a grain that I'm becoming more and more obsessed with - pearl barley. Pearl Barley kind of tastes like brown rice but it's much harder in texture and has a more nuttier flavour. It's seen as a 'nutrition powerhouse' being high in fiber which is known is to prevent cardiovascular disease and diabetes and it's also high in protein needed to build and repair body tissues which have been worn out. The salad was so simple to make and I seriously could have eaten the whole bowl in one siting! You'll find the recipe here.
