This kale and avocado salad bowl is a good make-ahead lunch to take when I'm on the go. I like to make my salads interesting with herbs, nuts, fruit and dressing. I added quinoa to make this a meal in itself, but you could take this out if you would prefer this as a side salad. It is also dairy-free and gluten-free.
Did you know that avocados contain more potassium than bananas? An essential nutrient for the nervous system, low levels of potassium can cause stress & anxiety. Quinoa is higher in protein than other grains and cereal and is also a good source of magnesium, a mineral important for nerve and muscle function.
1. In a bowl, add the cooked quinoa.
2. Chop the kale, parsley, mint and avocado into small pieces. Add to the bowl and toss in the almonds and dried cranberries.
3. In a mug, juice the lime and mix in with the olive oil. Then, drizzle over the salad and serve.
