carrots and greens aren’t just rabbit food. i had to chuckle when my neighbour recently referred to salads and vegetarian fare as ‘rabbit food’. i’m a firm believer that salads can definitely pack a nutritious punch without sacrificing on flavour. and if you get creative, you can find plenty of ways to sneak in a little extra protein in among the greens!

fresh into the new year, many of us are turning a new leaf (haha!) and trying to incorporate more salad and veggies into our daily diet. here’s a roundup of my fave yumyumyummers salad recipes… some are vegetarian, some are salads in disguise. ;) chop chop!

quick poll: are you back in the salad again for the new year?

  1. I’ve really come to enjoy all types of salads. I try to eat healthy and see these as an easy way to get a lot of fruits and vegetables in your diet. My favorite combination so far might be a salmon and spinach salad with some type of nut on it. It might just be vegetables and protein but it will fill you up for hours!


  2. The fennel and salmon spinach salad looks to die for!

    Thanks for sharing all these good recipes :)
