LENTIL,  BEETS, AVOCADO AND HALLOUMI

This is a juicy, satisfying dish. More of a meal than a salad. 

 

Benefits: Beetroots contain dietary nitrates, which act to improve blood flow and may help to maintain heart and liver health. Parsley is a powerful herb, which may aid detoxification and optimal digestion. This salad is rich in protein, fiber, essential fats and antioxidants. Simply omit the halloumi if for a plant-based version.
