High Raw Vegan Lentil Arugula Salad

This salad is low in calories but high in nutrients. If you do eat lower calorie meals, they should always be packed with nutrition. Lentils are a superior source of plant protein. In just 1 oz of lentils there is 2.6 grams of protein. All living foods contain proteins, as protein is a make up of amino acids. It’s not necessary to combine plant foods to make up complete proteins as the body will do that for you. Lentils are a wonderful addition to a raw food diet, even though they can be cooked you can also soak and sprout them first. People who have a hard time digesting beans, usually do much better with lentils.

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 cups organic arugula
  • 2-3 tbsp. alf alfa sprouts
  • 1/4 cup cooked green lentils
  • 1/8 green apple chopped or shredded
  • 2-3 slices of avocado, cubed
  • shredded ginger to taste (about 2-3 swipes on a grater)
  • fresh squeezed lemon juice overtop
Instructions: Grate or chop apple, slice avocado and shred a small chunk of ginger over top of your arugula. Sprinkle lentils, alf alfa sprouts and a squeeze of fresh lemon over top. You can cook your lentils in vegetable broth and seasonings, or just use water.
