Chickpea Cauliflower Salad with Tahini Turmeric Dressing

This salad is more like a meal and it is packed full of nutrients!

I decided to blanch the broccoli & cauliflower but you could use them raw. 

(Video below on the step-by-step process of eating healthy – where to start and how to implement things so that it is DOABLE for you and so you don't give up or get frustrated)

This salad has simple ingredients and if you do blanch a large amount of broccoli and cauliflower then you can use some in this salad as well as using it in a hot dish (by heating it up).

If it is cooked and ready in the fridge – you will have something to eating during the week.

You can also use it in any other kind of salad you have that week.

So be prepared! Make some veggies. Cut up some veggies and keep raw in a fridge container to add to a salad or a stir fry. 

When you are prepared, healthy eating is simple!
