“Look after the roots of the tree, and the fragrant flower and luscious fruits will grow by themselves. Look after the health of the body, and the fragrance of the mind and richness of the spirit will follow." -B.K.S. Iyengar
There's something about the change of seasons that always seems to have me want to change something about my diet. Whether it's to eat more vegetables, drink more fresh vegetable juice, make more soups, or make more salads, it's usually marked by me wanting to eat healthier. Okay, and maybe on those cold rainy days all I really want to eat is warm homemade cookies or macaroni and cheese. Recently, I've had this strong desire to eat more vegetables and salads, but I'm always worried about not feeling full enough. I mean, I'm a nursing mom who spends her days looking after a wriggly baby. You can be sure that I need plenty of calories! So I created this salad recipe that's loaded with vegetables like kale, beets, squash, and fennel and it's full of nuts, seeds, and a creamy tahini dressing to make it even more filling. Check out the recipe here!
