Thank you for having me over for the guest post today, Jackie!

Ok, so its January. and everyone seems to be talking about cleanses, eating healthy and what not. And I am like, let me just stop some of that sugar craving that I picked up over the holidays and I am good to go. I think it is a bit easier for me and most Indians in general because we are more addicted to salt and spice! Savory food hell yes.

Any which way, I digress. When people ask me or hubbs about what we eat, most times they auto-complete the answer to Salads. This is quite odd, because I eat hearty salad meals probably less than once in a month and hubbs probably once a week at work. That is quite infrequent, no? Raw leafy greens is something I rarely enjoy in huge quantities. They just do not agree with my tummy. So this is what I do with them and the way I love them. This delicious bowl of roasted cauliflower (croutons!), grains or lentils(protein!) and lightly cooked greens is my idea of a salad.:) Oh yes, did I forget to mention Sriracha almond coconut sauce (Spice!).

All healthy, light and delicious.
