Low CarbVegetarian

Now that we are going slowly toward cooler months (read: season), here in my kitchen I will be cooking more of sauteed vegetables, soups, and stews using bone broth, and bake anything with chocolate or bananas (ahem…). So make sure to stay tuned for more yummy recipes, friends!

If you want to cook something easy but healthy and delicious for lunch or dinner, try this warm balsamic kale salad {another great recipe from chef John Moogan

This dish is so colorful and packed with vitamins and minerals. It has so many nutrients-dense veggies in it like kale that is high in fiber, mushrooms which are powerful anti-oxidant, and peppers for vitamin C. Another reason why you’ll love this dish is because it’s super easy to make, it only requires 7 ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to cook it.

If you want to add more protein, feel free to add something light and delicious like grilled shrimps, salmon, or tofu!
