I don't know about you but making lunch sometimes just feels like a hassle. I'd rather skip it most days and snack on a protein bar. Which, sure, our protein bars are the best around and have some really great nutrition, but it isn't a meal.
This Sesame Cabbage Salad with Aduki beans is a super simple salad that can be made the night before, put in Tupperware (glass preferably) and taken with you on the go (Tip: add the dressing in the morning). While you are at it why not have it with the protein bar for added nutrition. I like to approach meals with intention, thoughtfulness, and mindfulness, however life has picked back up and I'm back to whirling around. Our goal here is to make your life a bit easier, with simple recipes that are always organic, plant-based, and free of gluten, dairy, corn, soy, and egg. So enough chatting, let's get to the recipe. Hope you enjoy.
