Eat the REAL FOOD rainbow! That’s what I’m all about, you guys (just check out my Broccoli Bacon Salad recipe). Enjoying all the beautiful foods nature has to offer is so important to me. Nourishing our bodies is such a privilege, and guess what? It can taste amazing, too!

You need this Crunchy Asian Salad recipe in your life, trust me.

Make it for your next spring or summer cookout as a healthy vegetarian side or make it an entree salad with some grilled chicken!

I love veggies, like I seriously love them.

Fun fact: I was a vegetarian for almost ten years and never really 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.

The Orange Tahini Salad Dressing

This dressing is great because it’s super flavorful and really versatile. It works on this Whole30 Asian salad, of course, but also on wraps, as a dipping sauce for my favorite Feel Good Foods egg rolls — basically anything and everything!
