Five Minute Winter Salad

I am loving this Winter salad, that was honestly thrown together in five minutes and tastes fabulous. The colours are just to die for too! I find it can be hard at this time to eat healthily as I crave warmth and often seek it in food. Do you feel the same? But this salad is so comforting yet light, I feel it ticks all the boxes for a healthy eat and it contains over 11 plants!

There was a time when at this time of year I would restrict myself heavily, drastically reducing my calories in an effort to shift Christmas pounds but now I’m happy to say, things are very different. I know longer count calories, I just count plants instead! Increasing plant consumption feels so much healthier and “normal”. No restrictions but indulgence in the good stuff.

Give this recipe a whirl, it serves 2.


Rocket – 1 bag
Avacado – 1 sliced
Cooked beetroot – 1
Broccoli stems – 4
Feta cheese – 1/2 pack
Canellini beans – 1/2 tin drained and rinsed
Red cabbage leaves x 2 – sliced
Handful dill
Handful toasted mixed seeds
Lemon juice
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper



Combine everything in a bowl then scatter with the following:

Squeeze of lemon juice, drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and then salt and pepper to finish.

Did you know seeds count as plants? So a mix of poppy, sunflower and pumpkin seed toasted and sprinkled on top of any salad (as seen here) counts as 3 plants!
