Superfood Salad! 

So we LOVE getting delicious ready made salads from Whole Foods, but I think we can all agree they are incredibly expensive! We came up with an idea to make your salads last longer than 1-2 meals. Instead of eating the $10 salad simply on its own and having no left overs, steam up a bunch of kale which will be bulk of your salad and simply garnish it with your Whole Foods salad. This way you can enjoy it for days! Hope you enjoy this health and budget tip :) 

 - Steam up desired amount of kale (I prefer Tuscan Kale) in a pan with a few tablespoons of water. Stir frequently.   - Add a few scoops of your choice of Whole Foods ready made salads. In the photo above I've added 2 different Whole Foods salads: Roasted Yam Superfood Salad and Quinoa with Morrocan Winter Squash
