Vitamin Bs for Mental Health:
This May, we're cooking up recipes with ingredients rich in nutrients and vitamins to support a healthy brain and mental well-being. Folate and folic acid are part of the B vitamin family, and research has shown that people with a diet rich in folate are less likely to develop depression. Folate can be found in leafy green vegetables, legumes, and whole grains. O2 Living's kale, arugula, quinoa and fennel salad packs a triple punch of folate! This delicious, light and perfect for summer salad makes for a great side or full meal. We like to pair it with Living Juice's organic, cold-pressed Red Radiance to mix the bitter greens with sweet fruits and veggies!
2 cups organic, shredded kale
2 cups organic arugula
2 cups cooked quinoa, cooled
1 bulb of fennel, cleaned and diced in 1/4 in cubes
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Juice and zest of one organic lemon
2 organic garlic cloves, minced
1. Mix together kale and arugula in a bowl. Massage both with olive oil.
2. Mix in quinoa, fennel and garlic cloves with the greens.
3. Add in lemon juice and zest. Stir and serve with Living Juice's organic, cold-pressed Red Radiance!
