I have been enjoying sunny and warm weather lately. Hope you are too. It’s been quite a quiet month, everyone seems to be on holidays and everything seems to be slow moving.
Though there were some humid, then rainy and thundery days, I am not complaining. Summer is one of my favourite seasons. Not only the weather is making me more energetic and happier, it is also the season that I can eat all my favourite fruits – berries and stone fruits.
Light and fresh lunch has been on my menu as of late. Whenever I could, I like to add a few variety of fruits in my salad. This summer, as usual, I make sure that I eat one of my favourite fruits, cherries. These pretty fruits drive me crazy! I could easily finish 1kg by myself within minutes!
This time, I am a bit more sensible. As the price of cherries seems to have been increased, probably because low supply. So, I think of another way of eating them by adding to my salad. Instead of just using some green salad leaves, I like to give a bit more crunch and texture to my salad by adding some bulgur and quinoa.
With this combo I have got on my plate, I can eat and tell myself that it is one of the most healthy dishes that I have been eating.
Using bulgur or quinoa makes it a bit more filling than the usual leafy salad. They are both rich in protein and also rich in copper, magnesium and phosphorus. I got bulgur wheat, red and white quinoa in a packet that cooks in 10-15 minutes, which is great!
This fresh and summery salad definitely wins my heart. Hope it will win yours too!
