Kale Italian Bowl

Tuesday back from a long weekend can always make for difficult food preparation. So, I grabbed everything I could out of my fridge to make an amazing tasting Italian lunch - I've been craving cheesy pasta so what better to fill that void than a healthy salad?

Kale Italian Bowl

2 large handfuls of raw kale
1/2 cup of cooked quinoa
10 grape tomatoes sliced in half
3 tbsp of kalamata olive pieces
1/2 an avocado
1 zucchini sliced thinly
Small handful of pumpkin seeds
Small handful of sunflower seeds

Basil-infused olive oil
Apple Cider Vinegar
Black Pepper
1/2 lemon squeezed

Garnish with parsley and mix through for a fresh taste

I apologize in advance for the photos - the first one you can't see half of the ingredients and the second is the bowl half finished!

My insulin ration for this isn't much - the few tomatoes, 1/2 avocado and 1/2 cup of quinoa amount to about 20g of carbs (there was probably less quinoa than 1/2 cup) so I would give myself 1 unit as I was sitting at a blood sugar level of 5.0 before lunch.

Happy Tuesday - Forget about it!
