How about making your salad the main dish. This potato and steamed/boiled beetroot is just the job to beef up a salad and turn it into a main course option. Simply put on extra potatoes the previous night to add them to a salad the next day. Many of these ingredients can be bought of the shelf ready made with little to no preparation time.

This recipe gives a slow release of glucose (energy) with plenty of raw foods rich in enzymes to facilitate digestion.   A lighter way to eat during the summer months when temperatures and sunlight affect appetite and nutrient requirements change.
