This year's Spring Intermittent Fasting Challenge is HERE 🥳 We're kicking off three weeks of maximizing gut health and naturally tapping into fat burning mechanisms while eating DELISH meals to support our goals.
And today is no exception!
But before we dive into the recipe, if you haven't already joined the Challenge, it's not too late!
Head over HERE to grab the deets!
Throughout the Challenge and in the 21 Day Intermittent Fasting Program, you learn the importance of eating foods rich in protein, fat and fiber to help you achieve your weight loss and wellness goals with Intermittent Fasting. This combination is crucial for balancing blood sugar levels and minimizing insulin spikes.
In honor of the Spring Intermittent Fasting Challenge, today I'm sharing one of my favorite protein, fat and fiber rich salads lately ~ The Summery Caprese Salad. It might not be summer yet, but things are finally starting to warm up a bit, which means I'm craving fresh, crunchy salads.
Today's recipe has various forms of high quality protein, fat and fiber for you to sink your teeth into 😋 Plus, it's 100% in line with your 21 Day Intermittent Fasting Meal Plan!
Feel free to enjoy this meal as your break-fast or lunch throughout the Spring Intermittent Fasting Challenge!
Now let's dive into the GOODS. Enjoy your Summery Caprese Salad!
Summery Caprese Salad
2-4 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 Tbsp. pine nuts
1/4 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella balls (OR an extra 1 Tbsp. pine nuts OR 1 oz. fresh cashew milk mozzarella)
1 Tbsp. balsamic
2 tsp. olive oil
3 oz. protein of choice, cooked (grilled chicken, shrimp, tempeh and salmon are all great options for this recipe!)
pinch of salt
Add all ingredients in a bowl and toss to combine.
Note: Because mozzarella naturally contains protein, we only need to use 3 oz. of cooked protein in this meal instead of the usual 4 oz. If you opt for the plant-based mozzarella swaps, you can increase your protein of choice to 4-5 oz to compensate for the lost protein.
