This autumnal salad makes the most DEEE-LISH side for whatever you’re serving up tonight. Salads aren’t just for Summer BBQ’s, with every single bite packed full of body loving nutrients its time to put salads on your go-to list. A study found that it doesn’t matter what the food is, your stomach has a gram counter which tells us when we’re full. So lets say for example your stomach got full on 400g of food (every person is different this is just an example), if this was calorie dense junk with low nutrients or nutrient dense goodness you’re going to be the same fullness after 400g. So fill up on the good stuff and watch your energy levels boost!
Eating in season is the best way to get more for your money and I’m not just talking about produce. When a fruit or vegetable is naturally in season its at its most nutrient dense and by eating seasonal salads, you are keeping it fresh so your taste buds aren’t getting bored. P.S it can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days in air tight containers, so get your prep on girl.

1. Steam your brussels sprouts and butternut squash/sweet potatoes. Then add them to a bowl. Add the rest of the ingreidnts and toss so that the ACV coats the salad.
