I love veggies, like I seriously love them. Fun fact: I was a vegetarian for almost ten years and never once missed eating meat. I know it sounds kind of crazy looking at the way I eat now, but it’s totally true. Obviously I’ve incorporated a lot of animal protein into my diet since that time, but I still really enjoy eating plant-based meals. Whether you’re vegetarian, pescatarian, or just love a good salad, this Whole30 Asian Salad is for you!
