The Good Fat Salad

When I come home late from working out, I am always craving something really filling, but don’t want to undo all the work I’ve done! So, putting a bunch of ingredients that contain healthy fats in a salad is a prefect way to fill up and to keep from snacking after dinner. 

I usually combine some tofu, half an avocado and cashews to make quick week night meal. I add some currants or raisins for a bit of sweetness and drizzled the whole thing with 25 year aged balsamic vinegar my mom gave me. The healthy fats and the protein help to fill you up but not make you feel terribly full. Also, the sweetness in the vinegar and currants help to keep me from snacking on sweets after dinner, which I am guilty of more times than not.

Also, this a perfect Meatless Monday Meal! If you need more than just the salad for dinner, serve along with a side of soup or some fresh bread. Enjoy!

Good Fat Salad

Salad for 1 (Double for two servings)

2 oz of tofu or one hard boiled egg
Handful of whole cashews, chopped
Half an avocado, cut in slices or chunks
Salad greens
1/4 c currants or raisins
1/4 c red onion, chopped
drizzle of really really good balsamic

Start with the greens and layer the remaining ingredients. I don’t use olive oil because there is already a lot of good fat coming from the avocado and chopped up cashews.
