Immune-boosting kale, squash, purple cabbage, arugula, almonds, basil and pears are all tossed in a tangy-sweet dressing. To add more protein, you could add grilled shrimp or salmon.
This healthy vegetarian main dish salad is inspired by Sweetgreen's Winter Squash Salad loaded with lots of nourishing, colorful fruits and veggies. Yesterday I shared this
Warm Curry Roasted Butternut Squash and Veggie Salad
. Today's salad is enjoyed cold with hearty vegetables that last a while in the refrigerator.
Hi Everyone, I'm Heather K. Jones. I'm a dietitian, the nutrition expert for the

Feel Better Eat Better
, an online weight loss program for women who struggle with emotional eating, overeating or body image issues.
In this time of uncertainty, being kind, loving and nurturing to ourselves and each other is more important than ever.
And if your emotional eating is especially unbalanced right now, I want to remind you to please be easy with yourself. We often use food in a conscious or unconscious attempt to suppress or soothe uncomfortable emotions, or to try to feel grounded and safe.
Right now in my free
Feel Better Eat Better Facebook group
I'm sharing videos with tools for dealing with anxiety and emotional eating. And
you'll find lots of free resources to love yourself healthy.
It's also more important than ever to be MINDFUL about what we are choosing to consume. For me this means less news, less social media and less technology... and more meditation, more reading, more creativity and more vegetables!
This delicious and satisfying salad was inspired by a salad from Sweetgreen, a fast-casual restaurant chain with "simple, seasonal, healthy salads and grain bowls." Immune-boosting kale, squash, purple cabbage, arugula, almonds, basil and pears are all tossed in a tangy-sweet dressing. To make it even more filling, you could add grilled shrimp or salmon.
Use whatever you have on hand and swap out what you don't!
- Cheese -- Swap out the blue cheese for gorgonzola or leave it out to make it dairy-free.
- Pears -- they can be replaced with red or green apples.
- Arugula -- swap it out for any mixed baby greens.
