Super Food Skin Loving Salad

Posted by on

Here at Myroo we firmly believe that exercise and diet are as important for great skin as the skincare you use. We embrace a healthy-in-and-out approach to lifestyle. 

I am an absolute foodie and don't believe in depriving myself, rather I embrace all the food groups and eat the best Mother Nature has to offer. However I do choose foods for their nutrition as well as their taste. I do need a gluten free diet and I have a nut allergy, so I totally understand the challenges free-from cooking can present, but I don't think it needs to be an obstacle to delicious, health giving food.

This salad is something I made recently and it was such a hit that I thought I'd share it with you. It's packed with goodness and super healthy. It is gluten free, nut free and if you dress it with a vinaigrette rather than the yoghurt dressing it would be vegan and dairy free too. 

Super Food Skin Loving Salad Recipe

Serves 2 people with left overs.

Chop half a small squash, 1 red pepper, 2 beetroot and 2 red onions, toss in oil (I use rapeseed) and a crushed garlic clove. Oven roast until soft and toasted at the edges.

Cook 2 handfuls of quinoa in good quality stock, as per the packet ingredients. Drain and cool.

Chop an avocado and toss in lime juice. Finely chop a red chilli.

Drain a tin of chick peas. And rinse a bag of baby spinach.

Mix the whole lot together in a large bowl.

I served mine with a yoghurt dressing; 100ml natural yoghurt mixed with 2 tbsp rapeseed oil, 2 tbsp or red wine vinegar and seasoning. A vinaigrette or your favourite dressing would work too.

It's tasty on it's own or is great with halloumi, chicken or salmon, if your diet allows.
