  • My fave way to eat This bowl in particular is
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition My fave way to eat This bowl in particular is rich in plant based (non-haem) IRON, a key mineral for energy, immune system function, transporting oxygen to our muscles and so that we can function optimally. Iron deficiency is actually incredibly common - in pregnant women, women in their reproductive years, children and individuals following a vegetarian and vegan diet, however we can reduce our risk of iron deficiency by ensuring we eat a variety of iron rich foods and teaming them with Vitamin C rich foods to improve the absorption of iron. C and Iron work like a little

CURRIED CAULIFLOWER AND CHICKPEA SALAD

Holy flip – this salad is a total knockout! Best best best combination of spices and flavours. Incredibly hearty with the chunks of cauliflower and a lovely inclusion of proteins – chickpeas and yoghurt.

QUICK PROTEIN SNAPSHOT:

400g tin chickpeas contains approximately 18g protein

3/4 cup (100g) greek natural yoghurt  approximately 8g

Across this recipe you gain an extra 26g protein (total) you may not otherwise from a salad without chickpeas or a greek yoghurt dressing.

So what’s the message here?

Sneak your protein sources in here and there and it all adds up! Don’t become too fixated with big chunks of protein at every single meal, what you do across the entirety of the day all adds value!!!

This salad can be served warm or cold, and it’s even more delicious the following day to be honest! All the flavours marinate together beautifully.
