One and a half hour before my workouts I try not to eat anything, maybe a banana or half a raw energy bar at most. My body simply does not agree with me if I eat a whole meal before a run, swim, crossfit session or hot yoga class. I get slower, nauseous and it even makes me grumpy (because I don’t perform as well as I could).

So after a workout, I’m slightly starved and hungry for a big salad. One of those filling chewy ones, that takes ages to finish, with lot’s of vitamins, fibre & protein. I made this salad with random ingredients I had at home – which are often the best new recipes.

What do you need for one big bowl?

  • 2 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 handful watercress
  • 1/2 handful sprouts
  • 1 avocado in pieces
  • 1/2 chopped red pepper
  • 2 tbs chopped cilantro
  • 150 gr smoked chicken breast in pieces
  • 3 tbs cottage cheese
  • 200 gr chickpeas
  • 3 el Tess Organic Sweet & Spicy Pompoenies or mixed nuts and spices
    (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut oil palmsugar, ginger, kurkuma)
  • Dressing: 2 tbs coconut & the juice of 1 lime

How to prepare
Really simple. Just combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir it gently. That’s it! Enjoy
