Spring is just around the corner & that means a truckload full of seasonal spring vegetables are coming to grocery store near you! What can you expect in the spring? Apricots, asparagus, artichokes, endive, honeydew, lychee, mango, & so much more! I’m really excited for the new season–not only will there be less snow walls to climb, but more delicious recipes to be made! But, let’s not get carried away because it’s still winter in Boston, so let’s embrace a winter salad. Why would you eat a salad during the winter? Well, I guess you’d have to be craving it, eating healthy, have a really heated house, or because your salad is no ordinary salad, it’s a couscous salad. Yeah, it’s cold still, but it’s not just a bowl of leafy greens (that’s not a bad thing either).

Couscous Winter Salad
Have a dinner party coming up or potluck or just in need of a new salad for lunch? My Couscous Winter Salad recipe is a great new candidate for you to try out. The recipe is vegan, but adding cheese such as feta or goat, would go very nicely with this salad. Couscous is a great pasta to have around the house, especially because it is so versatile. Whether you desire a cold or a warm dish with some curry, a cooked cup of it is only 175+ calories & 6g of protein. You could even cook the couscous in green tea to infuse it with an extra dose of antioxidants on top of the pomegranate seeds. I personally prefer it with a savory curry, but it’s still enjoyable as a salad too.
So, I was a bit ambitious & wanted to post a bunch of new albums in the gallery from last year, but I’m just not up to it today. I’ve been pretty active lately (yoga, y’all!), so if you think I just sit on the couch picking my nose all day playing The Sims 4 (you guys, it’s available on the Mac now!!!), you’re just like 80% wrong. Also, if you haven’t already participated Georgina’s A Day in the Life Monthly Linkup you should. The next date is St. Patrick’s Day, so hopefully I’ll have a nice naturally green recipe, because all of those dyed recipes creep me the heck out. I’m also traveling to Bogota, Colombia on March 19th for a wedding so if you enjoy travel photos, YOUZ GON BE IN FO A REAL TREAT, Y’ALL!
What’s your favorite naturally green food? Stuffed cabbage, salad, matcha, what what what tell me tell me!
