Hey guys!

This is a delicious healthy salad that is fairly easy to make!

You will need:

Salad:
- Small cauliflower or half of a large one.
- Small broccoli
- Punnet of cherry tomatoes
- Handful or so of snow peas
- Clove or 2 of garlic
- Large handful of pine nuts
- Large handful of cashews
- Cracked pepper, as much as you like as long as you don't overdo it

Dressing (Add at the end):
- Soy sauce (2 tablespoons)
- Honey (2 tablespoons)
- Sesame oil (2 tablespoons)


Directions!

1. Preheat the oven at 180 degrees, fan-forced.

2. Cut up the broccoli and cauliflower finely and add them to your bowl/container. Basically the finer the better in this case.

3. Cut up the snow peas, garlic (can be mashed) and halve the cherry tomatoes.

6. Mix into the salad

4. Roughly cut up the cashews.

5. Spread the pine nuts and cashews on an alfoil covered baking tray and bake for around 5 minutes. They should be golden brown at the most and make sure you watch them the whole time otherwise they'll burn :O

7. Add the sesame oil, soy sauce and honey to the salad and mix it.

Diggin' it. My only modification would be to add some lean meat to the mix to up the protein content, such as some shaved chicken or turkey breast or a can of tuna. I'm trying to aim for about 50/30/20 Protein/Carb/Fat ratio at the moment.

Definitely need s'more protein for me. I might toss some tofu in there or chicken breast. This already has your healthy carbs and fats, just needs a bit more protein and done.

Going to add some chicken into it also, I need more protein in my diet.

There's about 35g of protein in that recipe. Have a glass of milk with it and you've got another 10g.

How much fucking protein do you people think you need in one meal lol?

Fair point Mr Semantics. I dunno who is going to want to eat a whole head of broccoli and cauliflower in one sitting though. I would estimate the entire recipe has about 15-17g protein based on the quantity listed.

I'm trying to get at least 150g protein per day currently, so yeah, I'd dump some tuna or meat in to help. Every gram counts as cakes says.

One of my dads favourite snacks is 95g tin of chilli tuna on some vitawheat biscuits.

Awesome if you want a protein boost that's a snack, it's pretty perfect.

Yeah, I like this on toast. The lemon pepper one is pretty awesome too.

Another good snack (if you want the energy hit and aren't approaching your fat totals too quickly) is peanut butter on crackers/vitawheat. 8g of protein per 25g. Get a light organic one that is salt reduced and it will often have relatively low saturated fats, with higher monounsaturated fats.

I have a peanut butter and honey sandwich about 30minutes before every workout. Perfect and quick energy delivery with the honey being such a great natural sugar.
