We don't believe food should be a yo-yo of diets and restrictions. So, how do you a create healthy, happy, sustainable lifestyle for yourself? Simply by starting meals with plants rather than meat. We aren't vegan or vegetarian ourselves and we find by taking on this mindset we start every meal by naturally decreasing our meat intake and naturally increasing our plant intake. This Broccoli Buckwheat Sesame Salad is a perfect example, as it shows you how easy, delicious and quick a plant-based meal or salad can be. It's loaded with vibrant colours, flavours and textures. It will last three days in the fridge, so leftovers are great taken to the beach or to work for lunch.
