There’s no shame in admitting that, once in a while, when you get home, you feel exhausted. At that moment, the last thing you want to do is spend another two hours of your day making dinner.
I get you; we have all been there, which is why I’m here to give you a solution for dinner that will provide your body with all the nutrients it craves for 一 a quick salad, packed with all the necessary vitamins and minerals. To help you make a vitamin-infused salad in just 15 minutes or so, I decided to write down all the essential ingredients for quick salads for dinner.
Here they are:
- Dark green vegetables like spinach, broccoli, kale, lettuce, etc. These vegetables are infused with vitamins A and C, as well as magnesium and potassium. Chop them up and throw them in a bowl, no cooking needed!
- Nuts, 一 walnuts, peanuts, almonds, cashews, etc. These foods are rich in magnesium, vitamin B6, and calcium.
- Quinoa, or other pseudo-cereals like amaranth. Quinoa is a gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain sufficient amounts of all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, and various antioxidants.
- Chicken or turkey. If you want to add some meat, I would suggest you opt for chicken or turkey, as this lean meat is infused with vitamin B6 and niacin. Chop up skinless chicken breasts into pieces, put them into the pan, add a bit of olive oil and salt, and the meat is good to go.
