Hold up....this is a post about food, and yet there is no caramel or chocolate in sight.
Jordyn and I have really really been wanting to start sharing our favourite meals (in addition to all the desserts we love) here on the blog, not only to share with all of you, but for ourselves and friends to have easy access to our everyday recipes. So, be prepared (hopefully) for more legitimate meals to be appearing here.
Don't worry, there will always be a healthy dose of sweets as well!
Anywho....this is superfood salad! It actually does have superpowers....since I'm not a huge fan of pomegranates or oranges, but since eating this salad I have been converted. There is so much protein and goodness going on in this salad, that it makes a wonderful lunch or supper, or even a great side dish.
