hi everyone!  thought i'd share the ingredients for the yums i've been posting on my instagram lately!  since these are my everyday meals and it would make me bonkers to write down the amounts of each ingredient, they're not full recipes.  but i've listed out the ingredients (plus a few notes when necessary) and you can throw in whatever amounts make your mouth happy!  hope you love!  xx- sarah  {more after the jump}

1. toasted kale, avocado, thinly sliced red onion:  preheat over to 200 degrees, de-stem kale, give a toss with a bit of olive oil and sea salt, roast for 20-25 minutes or until kale is crispy on edges and softened.  add avocado, onion and lots of fresh squeezed lemon juice and fresh cracked pepper.

2. arugula, beluga lentils, daikon radish, avocado:  (use a julienne peeler for the daikon).  dress with a tahini dressing.

3. quinoa, purple cabbage, red onion, cherry tomatoes, spinach.  sauté with garlic, ginger, tamari, ponzu, lime juice, sea salt, rice vinegar.

4. spinach, arugula, julienned purple carrots and daikon, blueberries, cherry tomatoes, avocado, hemp seeds, sea salt, fresh cracked pepper, citrus vinaigrette.

5. spinach, arugula, yellow carrots, red bell pepper, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, basil, pickled onion, sunflower seeds, sea salt, fresh cracked pepper and balsamic vinaigrette.

6.  mixed greens, beluga lentils, cherry tomatoes, blueberries, pickled onions, hemp seeds, tahini dressing.

great ingredients and beautiful colors!

where do you get most of your protein from? also, about how many calories do you consume daily?

all these foods look so healthy AND tasty!

thanks marlene! they're all healthy, easy to prepare and delicious!
i have no idea how many calories i eat, i don't pay any attention to calories but instead just try to eat as many fruits/veggies and other healthy foods as i can in a day.

i know that protein is a major concern for some people, but honestly that's again something that i don't think about. i eat plenty of vegetables (which have lots of natural protein, you can see a list of how much here:

i also eat beans (lentils, chickpeas, black beans, etc), nuts & seeds, and quinoa, which is super high in protein. but again, this is something i don't spend time thinking about! when your diet is varied and full of veggies, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, etc i honestly believe you'll be getting all the nutrition your body needs. happy eating! xx- sarah
