This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). This is essentially a huge bowl of (primarily) non-starchy veggies topped with a light lime vinaigrette. It's incredibly high in volume while being low in calories. Volume eaters with a fat loss goal might dig this chop salad bowl. So much food! However, as I discussed in the article above, it's low in protein.If you are using this as a full meal versus a post-vacation reset, consider adding more protein. Double up on the chickpeas in the recipe, add other legumes, or perhaps some grilled chicken. You may also want to use a little more oil in the dressing if you have higher energy needs.This likely comes as no surprise, but bread is often included with the Wildflower Bread salads. Another way you could add more energy (i.e., calories) to the meal is to add some bread. There are essential amino acids and essential fatty acids but no essential carbohydrates. I don't consider grains to be a requirement for a balanced meal, but that doesn't mean everyone should exclude them either.Nutrition information is for one serving of the recipe.
