In my family I’m famous for loving salads. You know what my uncle asked my mom, when they discussed what each family should make for Christmas eve?
“Can you maybe get Josefine to make a Fine-salad”. Fine being short for Josefine (a few people call me Fine, but most people use Jose)
I thought that was quite funny. And then I made a lovely christmas salad fir myself and my family. (check out a picture of it here).
This is not the salad I made for christmas, but it is a least as good. I would maybe say better.
This salad is very healthy and filling.
Edamame beans are high in fiber, which is good for your digestion, proteins and antioxidants (source).
Kale is high in iron which is essential for the formation of hemoglobin, which helps transport oxygen around in the blood (hear the biotechnology-student inside me… nerd, I Know) and is also high in fiber (source).
Mushrooms are the only fruit or vegetable which as vitamin D, which we usually only gets fromthe sun – great now when it is winter and we don’t get enough sunlight. Also mushrooms boosts your immune system – again great here in the wintertime (source).
All the fibers in kale and edamame and the proteins in the edamame helps keeping you full longer.
Hey – look at how good I am at living out my new year resolutions. Two delicious vegetarian dishes in a row. But well, when they taste as good as these two dishes it isn’t hard to keep that resolution. Haha.
