If you feel like a nutrient packed lunch but don’t have a lot of time to prepare, this salad is a great option.

It’s one of our favourites because it contains a wide range of nutrients and does a really good job at restoring your body after a hard training session.

Turkey is good source of protein and vitamins B3 and B6, great for sustained energy levels and a healthy nervous system.  Make sure you buy grass-fed organic turkey to optimize nutritional value.

Artichokes contain a wide range of nutrients that support the muscles and nervous system; plant protein, magnesium and potassium, are a few nutrients this plant contains.

We like adding nutritional yeast to our salads as it gives the salad a subtle nutty and cheesy flavour which we like. As a bonus, nutritional yeast also provides a good dose of B12 vitamins, essential for red blood cell production.

Long story short: a tasty and nutritious salad.

This recipe will take about five minutes to prepare and makes salad for two.
