Maintenance – Meal-On-A-Plate Salad

In honor of the new food pyramid which was very much influenced by THE POWER PLATE by PCRM, I decided to enjoy a salad that had it all : FRUIT, VEGETABLES,  GRAINS, AND LEGUMES.  And boy was it delicious!

  I have also been playing around with oil-free dressings and decided to try one from  Rip Esselstyn’s (“He is such a stud”, to quote Veteran Mommy) which is found in his book “The Engine 2 Diet”.


Choice of Greens (I used Green Leaf)

1/2 cup broccoli florets

1/2 cup beans (I actually did a mix of kidney and black)

1/2 cup brown rice

1/2 a red pepper, chopped

2 strawberries, sliced

E2 Basics Dressing:

2 TBS nutritional yeast

1 TBS tamari (or soy sauce)

1 TBS mustard (I prefer stone-ground)

Juice from 1 lemon, lime, or oragnge

1 TBS agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup

1 TBS wheat germ

Whisk the ingredients together in a bowl.  Store leftover in the refrigerator.
