Method Of Love

  1. Bring nutritious quinoa to a boil. Let simmer covered until quinoa absorbs all the liquid.

  2. If you choose chicken as your protein ingredient: Cook breasts of chicken OR if you choose navy beans as your protein source: Drain and rinse.

  3. In a perfectly large pan, sauté the onion and carrots in the coconut oil, until the auroma fills your kitchen. Once sautéed, add the remaining vegetation into the pan on low heat.

  4. Blend tahini, lemon juice, tamari, garlic and a few shakes and sprinkles of powders to your blender. As you blend, add up to 2 cups of filtered water to your dressing.

  5. In a large serving bowl or glass tupperware, toss your vegetables, protein ingredient and quinoa into a Beautiful mess.

  6. If you choose to have this Beautiful Salad one serving at a time, pour your Calcium Dressing over your small bowl of nutrients.

  7. If you choose to serve your dinner party guests, pour and toss the dressing over the Beautiful bowl, bless your food and enjoy!

*If you are so not into soaking your beans just yet, use 4 cans of organic navy beans. It will be equally as nutritious and delicious!!
**If you are choosing to eat this salad one serving at a time, do not pour your Calcium Dressing until you are ready to eat. Store it in a mason jar, seal your salad and store both in your refrigerator for just over a week ... if it lasts that long!!!
