I get asked a lot about some of my best weight loss tips and tricks. And as someone who has lost 100 pounds, I have developed some really great food strategies that have helped myself and others in losing weight. And one of the biggest ways I can tell you that has helped in my weight loss on a whole food plant based diet has been to start my meals with a non-starchy vegetable. Most of you know that for breakfast I choose to start with some celery and low fat peanut butter before I eat my bowl of oatmeal. And for lunch and dinner one of my favorite non-starchy vegetables to eat before is a spinach salad. I posted my southwest spinach salad a while back and many have commented on enjoying it. So I thought that I would get another recipe and video out on another one of my favorite salad recipes. For my triple berry spinach salad I love using whatever berries are in season, and if you have many options I would recommend using your favorites.
Here's what you will need!
6 oz of fresh spinach
1/4 cup raspberries
1/4 cup black berries
2-3 tbs balsamic vinegar
1 tbs dry goji berry or raisins
1 tbs flax or sesame seed
Add the spinach to the bowl
Top with the berries and flax seeds
Drizzle the balsamic vinegar on top
