Due to trying to lose a bit of flab that’s built up over a summer full of over indulgence, I have been having raw salads for lunch this week. I have noticed a difference already because I have felt less bloated, so I’m going to continue with it for a while.
I know there are lots of “raw til 4” type programs around, but I don’t feel like you needa huge amount of guidance with this; I just chop up some salad for lunch!
This one was my favourite so far; not 100% sure whether you would count chickpeas as raw, but I thought as they are dried then re-hydrated that might be ok? Let me know what you think. Also olives; living in the U.K. I can’t really get fresh olives, but I’m aiming for foods that are not cooked so maybe canning (they were from a jar but you know) is ok.
Chickpea, olive and parsley salad:
- 80g rocket lettuce
- 1 salad tomato, chopped
- 1 small red pepper, chopped
- 100g cucumber, chopped
- 1/2 drained chickpeas
- 10 olives
- 1 Tbsp chopped parsley
- Salt, pepper to season
- Sesame seeds to scatter on top
Put it all in a bowl and put it in ya belly!
