Hello to all salad lovers and salad eaters! I would like to share a salad I made which actually turned out very good and it was easy. Easy is always good as I am not one that knows how to cook very well....not just yet. I have found that salads are simple and mostly made of all raw foods, and you can't get any healthier than that! Bon appetite!
2-3 beets, peeled and grated
Tip: you can save the peels and then use them to dye some clothing!!
7 oz. of organic tofu or more, cut into 1/2" cubes
1 bunch of spinach
1-2 garlic cloves depending on what you like, I love garlic! finely chopped
1/2 1 lime to sprinkle on top
a bit of sesame oil
black sesame seeds
ground flax seeds
The amount of seeds to use for the salad is up to the "Cook". I like to use many because they are a great source of protein and many other things...please read below...
Here is some info about a few seeds I like to use a lot and the goodies they hold inside:
Sesame seeds: A good source of protein and calcium, 100g sesame seeds contain 26.4g protein, 12.6mg vitamin B3, 7.8mg iron, 131mg calcium and 10.3mg zinc.
Sunflower seeds: A good source of potassium and phosphorous, 100g sunflower seeds also contain 24g protein and 7.1mg iron and 120mg calcium.
Ahimsa: a Sanskrit term meaning to do no harm, a rule of conduct that bars the killing or injuring of living beings. It is closely connected with the notion that all kinds of violence entail negative karmic consequences.
