As it’s the new start to a yet another week full of work and meeting deadlines, I want to eat fresh to feel fresh. I want to eat meals that are made up of at-least one SUPERFOOD ingredient. And to ward off my MONDAY BLUES, I made myself a POWER SALAD for today’s lunch. It contains one of my favorite superfood – BUCKWHEAT. The salad also contains a good amount of lentils that are pretty healthy in their own as well. A single cup of cooked lentils contain almost 16 grams of dietary fiber, is a very good source of LEAN PROTEIN, FOLATE & IRON. BUCKWHEAT is low on the glycemic index which prevents a rapid spike in blood sugar levels. We can also say that Buckwheat has more protein than corn, millet, rice or wheat and is naturally GLUTEN FREE. Let us just make this salad for a powerful jumpstart towards a hectic week ahead.
