Carrot, Chick Pea & Date Salad

Protein salad

This is the first time I publish a post with a photo shot and edited on my phone. A lot of times I end up not posting something really worthy of a post, because I simply don’t have the time and my family is too hungry. Especially on weekdays, which is usually where the weekday magic tends to happen.

So my teen is vegetarian and after watching Cowspiracy last night, I immediately felt like joining her or at at least reducing my intake of meat and dairy dramatically. Hungry husband¬†can’t live without meat for more than a few days – or so he thinks. We are all different and that’s just fine.

This is a keeper. Lunch. Snack. Side. Dinner. Anytime.
