Protein salad

Much easier for your body to digest (and use) than animal protein; try with Balsamic dressing or Pesto mixed with Olive oil.

Essential: Chick peas (drained and rinsed from can), finely chopped (raw) Broccoli, diced Avocado, Alfalfa and/or other sprouts (loads), Sunflower seeds, Walnuts.

Optional: chopped flavoured Tofu*, sun-dried Tomatoes, chopped Olives, Almonds, Sesame seeds, chopped (raw) Fennel, Soya beans or garden peas (fresh or from frozen)**.

* Tofu can seem a bit ‘hard-core’ if you’re not used to it.  Try the flavoured varieties from Health food chops e.g. Basil/Olive/Almond, smoked or marinated.

** Avoid canned soya beans, as they turn into a gloopy mess and cause ‘wind’!
