The Mediterranean Diet recommends eating a plant-based diet as the primary portion of the foods we consume daily. One of the most typical plant based meals consumed is the salad. However, when you mention a salad, many people envision a large bowl of iceberg lettuce with some carrot shreds and ranch dressing. However, that kind of salad is low in nutrient value and can end up with as much fat as having a hamburger and fries, especially if the salad is topped with deli meats, cheese cubes and croutons. Not all salads are made the same, and how you top or prepare your vegetables can alter their nutritive values.
Well, this Avocado & Fava Bean salad is a powerhouse of the Mediterranean diet principles, providing many of the recommended foods all in one dish. The Avocado & Fava Bean salad includes avocados, fava beans, olive oil, lemon, almonds, fennel, sprouts, and seasonings all topped with a small amount of parmesan cheese. Who knew healthy food could look so beautiful, taste so good, and leave your body feeling full, satisfied, and energized.
