The Ultimate Spinach Salad

Now look, it's not my job, duty nor desire to convert anyone to a plant-based style of eating, I do however encourage you to play with all types of food, even that which you may not like, just for the fun of it, to see what you can create, from your heart/mind, for your precious body.
Sure, veggies are "good for you," but they doesn't mean they can't be exciting- and allow me to tell you, this salad, with it's bite after bite of different tastes, will continue to surprise your taste buds.
Funny that hey? I seem to say that often. ;)

And as always, can we not give a shit about the nutritional content, the calories, the fat, protein or carbs? Can we just eat (everything) as it is: Food, glorious food?

Play with your food <3


2-3 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Balsamic Vinegar
Handful of dates
1 clove garlic
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
Bunch of fresh basil - chopped roughly
A pack of Spinach  (a few good handfuls)
1/2 Cup Grilled Carrots (Optional- they were leftovers and knew they'd fit in perfectly, sweet potato would also be great, or a (roasted) red pepper. Get creative ;)
1/2 Red Onion, chopped fine
A handful of alfalfa sprouts (Optional)
1/4 cup Toasted sesame seeds
Handful Pumpkin seeds

Toast sesame seeds, set aside.
In a large bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, dates, garlic, salt, nutritional yeast, & basil.
Add rest of the ingredients and toss.

Easy ;)
