Spring Power Bowl Salad

We love powerful meals,

especially those that are powerful due to their awesome source of vitamins and minerals- like this yummy salad bowl. I made this powerful power bowl salad for Paul on a day when I didn’t have a whole lot of food in the house, and it was a REAL winner. Alone some of these ingredients can feel boring, but together they pack a powerful punch.

This salad bowl has a base of kale and spinach, and is topped with yellow carrots, avocado, black beans, sweet potato, red cabbage and some sun-dried tomatoes. This bowl is a great source of brain-healthy nutrients like folate, b vitamins, iron and potassium. This bowl is also super easy to make and modify. Add your favorite protein on top to make it a really complete meal (though it’s pretty awesome as it is!). If you’re able, please try to make the ingredients of this salad organic!
