Healthy Monday: This hearty salad of lentils, spinach, beets, avocado is the perfect storm of brain food goodness to keep you both sharp and satiated throughout the day. Flavor is amped up by cooking the lentils in broth and topping the bowl with a smooth and sweet walnut dressing and (best part) a coconut-fried egg.

Recipe of the Day: Winter Layered Salad        
Winter’s finest vegetables come together in this hearty salad brimming with Brussels sprouts, pomegranate seeds, juicy grapefruit and chewy barley.


Skookum’s Human-Pleasing Hearty Salad:

A bed of arugula, chopped bell pepper, halved cherry tomatoes, cooked and cooled barley, and toasted almond slices.

Toss with olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper.

Optional: Add some protein, like sliced fresh mozzarella (top) or chopped, seasoned chicken breast (bottom) and you’re good to go!

This is a great one to prepare all the ingredients for then throw together several times in a week or bring for lunches :)
