This Goats Cheese, Pine Nut & Cranberry Rocket Salad is a powerhouse of flavour and nutrition!
The goats cheese, pine nuts and cranberries are served on a bed of mixed leaves with rocket, which contains many vital phyto-chemicals, anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals that may immensely benefit health! Rocket is an excellent source of several nutrients that support eye health, including beta-carotene, a carotenoid your body can convert into vitamin A.
Goat’s Cheese is among the richest dietary sources of calcium, which plays an essential role in maintaining bone health. Cheese, like all other dairy products, is also a great source of protein!
The pine nuts included in this dish are crunchy yet butter textured, pleasantly sweet and delicious! They are also a very good source of plant derived nutrients, essential minerals, vitamins and “heart friendly” mono-unsaturated fatty acids that help benefit in reducing cholesterol levels in the blood! Furthermore, pine nuts contain healthy amounts of essential minerals like manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium.
The handful of dried cranberries in this dish give a zing of flavour and are an excellent source of fibre, helping to maintain a healthy digestive system.
This is a great vegetarian lunch option, or a brilliant alternative for those looking for a meat-free lunch!
In a perfectly-portioned, 500 calorie meal, this dish is perfect choice for those looking to eat healthily without sacrificing any flavour!
