This is a delicious and nourishing salad that my mom used to make for me when I was pregnant. Whether you're trying to conceive, already pregnant, or postpartum, this salad is for you.
Tempeh, chicken, or salmon
Mixed greens (lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, whatever you like)
Sprouts (broccoli, lentil, chickpea, mung bean, whatever you like)
Sauerkraut or kimchi
1 tbs Walnuts (chopped)
1 tbs Pumpkin seeds (soaked/sprouted if possible)
1 tbs Sunflower seeds (soaked/sprouted if possible)
1 tbs Nutritional yeast
1-2 tbs Apple cider vinegar
1-2 tbs Olive or hemp oil
Salt & Pepper
Chop tempeh to bite size pieces and steam for 10 minutes. Then sauté in a pan with coconut oil until lightly browned. Set aside to cool. (If you're using meat, cook ahead of time and set aside)
Chop your leafy greens to your preferred size and place in a bowl or container.
Chop your purple cabbage, celery, cucumber, tomatoes, and avocado. Add on top of your greens.
Add your sprouts, sauerkraut, carrots, corn, and tempeh or meat.
When you're ready to eat, sprinkle your chopped walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and nutritional yeast.
In a small container, combine your apple cider vinegar, oil, salt, and pepper. Shake well. Poor over your salad.
Enjoy your healing meal!
