Black lentils, quinoa, carrots, sunflower seeds, kale, lemon juice, a little bit of olive oil and of maple syrup, I challenge you to find a healthier salad! 🙂
I made this a couple of months ago, sometimes in November, and I wanted to post it immediately, but then I thought this is not something people would want to see during the Thanksgiving or Christmas time, it would only make them feel uncomfortable thinking of all the sugar and fat they actually do want to eat during this period. So January seemed a much better choice to present you with some health on the plate.
So make a big bowl of it and enjoy it over the next few days, it will keep well in the fridge, you can take it to work or have it in the evening when you don’t feel much like cooking.
But just a word of advice: cook something else for your kids!
