People say vegans don’t eat much. I find that hilarious being that my salads only fit in large batter bowls.
Protein is important in a vegan diet, especially if you’re trying to build muscle. So my favorite protein to add to a salad (if you’re making it a meal) is quinoa.
This is a diverse, leafy green salad with alfalfa sprouts and my summer balsamic dressing.
Summer balsamic dressing is super easy.
Get a small bowl, some lemon grass paste, olive oil, mustard and balsamic vinegar.
I really don’t have measurements for this, I made this dressing up a few months ago and have been hooked on it ever since.
Stir in your desired measurements and add a pinch of salt.
Add yo quinoa! This is a pre cooked quinoa meal with a red pepper jalapeño sauce. Yummm.
Green Tea Latte:
Tiesta Tea is my absolute favorite loose leaf tea brand. So much so that I became a brand ambassador. 😉
Take a few tablespoons of tea, steep in some hot water with a tea infuser or a coffee filter wrapped up with a rubber band would do just fine.
I steeped my tea in a mason jar.
Add your sugar/honey (whatever) before your ice, while the tea is still hot!
I like my tea latte sweet. 😉
This is not all of it.
Now add a lot of ice!
Add a splash of almond milk.
My secret ingredient….
A few drops of Sweet Leaf Cinnamon drops!
Shake it all up and you’ve got a sweet, cool, minty, green tea latte. 😉 You’ve GOT TO TRY THIS.
