Post-Fitness Power Salad

This is my go-to salad after the gym or a yoga class.  It’s really quick to make, ample portion of protein and greens, and is tossed in a simple and flavourful dressing.  It really helps to replenish my body with iron, b-vitamins, and essential fatty acids after a rigorous fitness session, and it tastes GOOD!  If you’re not a fan of tofu, replacing it with more hemp hearts, sunflower seeds, or chickpeas would be nice.

Ingredients for 1:

2 cups spinach ( I like to thinly slice my spinach leaves, they can be so big sometimes!)

2 tablespoons finely diced red onion

1/2 cup crumbled organic firm tofu

2 tablespoons hemp hearts

1 tablespoons nutritional yeast

1/2 an avocado, diced

Yummy Additions: Tomatoes, a few black olives, or cucumber.

Dressing:

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Place all salad ingredients in a big salad bowl.  Whisk together dressing ingredients and drizzle over salad.  Toss everything together really well, smooshing the avocado a bit so it coats the spinach leaves.

Thats it!
