DIY Superfood Salad Booster
A Super Easy Way to Boost Nutrition Density of Your Salad
Have you seen an old Coffee Crisp commercial with 2 old ladies making jokes while playing cards? My boyfriend recently told me about it and even though it took me a while to get it (my Russian brain used to Russian jokes), I find it very cute and funny now:) Check it out: Old Coffee Crisp Commercial
It goes something like this:
– So how do you like you coffee?
– I like my coffee crisp.
– You like your coffee crisp?
– I like my Coffee Crisp
If it’s not funny in words, watch the commercial!
I don’t drink coffee but I like a few things to be crispy and crunchy: salads, carrots, apples, raw bread sticks, sprouted nuts and sunflower seeds…. Crisp, crisp!
If you like your salads crunchy, too, and if you are one of those people who is always in a rush and busy even in the kitchen, you will LOVE what you are about to get!
May I present to you a Crunchy Superfood Salad Booster!!!
It has so many amazing sprouted seeds, spices, and sea plants that it will turn any salad into a nutrient rich power house. It is also a great source of fiber, healthy fats, and Omega 3’s thanks to chia seeds, and chlorophyll. The best thing is that you don’t have to scout through all the kitchen shelves for spices and seasonings every time you make a salad. Basically it will save you a good 10-15 min every time you make a salad. If you make it every night, you’ll save over HOUR and a HALF of precious time a week! Just enough to squeeze in a yoga class or do a short yoga nidra pre-dinner every night! Your belly appreciates good quality relaxation just as much as the salad!
Excited for this new time-saving recipe? Let’s get cooking!
Crunchy Superfood Salad Booster
You will need:
- 1 cup sprouted sunflower seeds (or 1/2 sunflower and 1/2 pumpkin seeds)
- 1/3 cup hemp seeds
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1/3 cup mixed black and white sesame seeds
- 3 tbs ground up flax seeds
- 3 tbs dulse flakes
- 2-3 tbsp chlorella powder (it has a strong smell so start small and slowly increase once you get used to it)
- 2-3 tbs spirulina powder
- 1 tbsp ground up lemon rind (optional but nice)
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne
- 1 tsp Ginger
- 1 tsp Cumin
- 2 tsp Turmeric
- Sea salt if necessary. Dulse makes it a bit salty already so I didn’t feel like I needed salt.
Mix together, cover and store in an air-tight container. Sprinkle over any salad for a special boost or gift to health-seeking friends as a DIY present! Who wouldn’t like a nutrient-dense sprouted seeds boost to their salads?!
You can also take it with you when you travel! It is an easy way to keep highly nutritious superfoods in your diet while away from a well-stocked kitchen.
It goes great on sunflower sprouts, avocado, and baked sweet potato salad:
Or just plain baby spinach leaves. I also tried in a green blended soup and roasted veggies. This mineral dense, nutrient rich sprouted booster is a keeper in my kitchen!
