5 Minute Salad

Don’t tell me you don’t have time to eat healthy.. I made this DELICIOUS salad in under 5 minutes. It takes just about 5 minutes to heat up one of those microwave meals or wait inline at McDonalds so if you haveasy-quick-salade time for either one of those things, this salad is for you.

1 Blinski’s Spicy Italian Chicken Sausageย 

1 Handful Mรขche Greens

1 Fingertip Full ( 1/4 cup-ish) ย Broccoli Microgreens

2 Tsp Coconut Oil

1 Sprinkle ( 1 tsp) Fennel Seeds

1 Toss (1 tbsp) Dried Rosemary

Fresh Lemon Squeezed

Pinch of Black Pepper

Directions

  1. Chop up sausage
  2. Heat skillet with 1 tsp coconut oil and throw in sausage, rosemary and fennel
  3. While warming up sausage place all your greens in a bowl and squeeze some lemon over it
  4. After about 3 minutes of the sausage heating place them and the toasted fennel seeds and rosemary onto salad
  5. Place the other tsp of coconut oil into pan and let melt then drizzle over salad
  6. Finish with black pepper and Volia you have a health enhancing salad in less than 5 minutes

WHY so GOOD for your HEALTH?? Wellllll..

  1. Broccoli Microgreens: 3- 10 day old microgreens contain 10-100 times more of the cancer fighting compounds found in mature broccoli. They are also surprisingly a good source of vitamins E and K!
  2. Coconut Oil: I hope everyone knows by now but, great for fighting unwanted gut microbes ( thank you Lauric Acid) and is medium chain fatty acid, meaning it is sent directly to the liver and used immediately for energy, rather than being converted to fat.
  3. Rosemary: In 100g serving it contains 18% of your vitamin A needs and 35% of your daily Calcium needs. Not to mention its high in antioxidants and is antibacterial.
  4. Fennel Seeds:Digestion, Digestion, Digestion, can help relieve any of those lovely side affect associated with indigestion.
  5. Mรขche Greens: Lots of Vitamin C and 14 times more Pro Vitamin A than Iceburg Lettuce! Plus good source of Potassium and Calcium.
