My Story

I was looking for a fresh healthy full of protein lunch. I always loved salads but never thought of it as an option of a full meal. As I was going vegan and trying to improve my cocking skills I realized what a great meal it can be to combine legumes in a rich vegetable salad to create a filling meal.
