Fabulous Feta!

Fabulous Feta!

I have been on a salad kick as of late…is it obvious?!?!

While this isn’t exactly inventive, its insanely delicious and healthy. As I have mentioned in previous posts, sometimes keeping it simple is simply best!

Cranberries, almonds and feta cheese play off each other well – both on your palate and in your body. Pairing these powerhouses ensures you’ve covered most of what your body needs to function at its best!

Feta cheese is high in protein and calcium but low in fat and calories. Boosting your body’s natural defenses with its probiotics and vitamins A/B, feta is one of those cheeses its okay to indulge in!

Almonds are high in protein too but are also full of fiber, folic acid, vitamin E and B2. These nuts are great for your skin, cell repair and your metabolic health!

Rounding out the trio is dried cranberries which I promise are not just there for a sweetly tart bite. Bursting with antioxidants that support your immune, digestive, cardiovascular and skeletal systems, these berries certainly hold their nutritional own.

Take a little less than a quarter cup of dried cranberries, fat free feta cheese and almonds to start. Add these three flavorful toppings to herbed mixed greens (parsley, dill and cilantro – yes, please!) and toss with a little salt/pepper and lemon. In this yummy, less than 350 calorie, salad you’ve got everything you need to stay motivated and fuel your day!

Enjoy!
