🌽🌶🍆So Easy So Good Veggie Salad🍆🌶🌽

So easy, so good! Yes this Vegan Veggie Salad is both!

I wasn’t really sure what to title this post. Yes I will tell you how to make the veggie salad. I also wanted to share with you why.

I’ve  been vegan for over three years now. I love being vegan and can’t imagine not being vegan. I eat only vegan food. The majority of the time I make all my meals from scratch. On some occasions I do eat packaged vegan foods. That my friends is what I mainly want to talk about. I promise I’ll keep it short 😂

I’ve  noticed that my body isn’t very happy  with me when I eat processed or package food even though it’s vegan.  To be truthful, my body feels like crap when I eat packed foods.

Listen to your body!

There are so many packaged vegan foods popping up in stores nowadays.

just because they’re vegan doesn’t mean they’re good for you. Some contain a lot of  sugar, sodium, oils, and some strange stuff I can’t pronounce😱

If you want to make sure the food you are eating is really good for you it’s best to make it yourself. I love knowing what is going into my body. When I make my meals from scratch I know exactly what I’m eating.

cooking from scratch isn’t hard or time consuming. You don’t need recipes or strange ingredients.

This is the part where the veggie salad comes in👍

It really is so easy to make!

I’ll tell you how I made mine, but you can make yours however you like😊

I used One 15oz can of organic no sodium black beans, one 15oz can of organic chickpeas. Drained and rinsed them. Pour into a large bowl. Add a 15 oz can of organic diced tomatoes with their juice. That’s the base of the salad. From this point on you can add any veggies and seasonings you like.

I added about a cup of corn, one chopped red bell pepper, a half red onion chopped, less then 1/4 cup of Oliver oil, a little sea salt and fresh ground pepper, a few dashes of chili powder, and some dried cilantro. Mix it all up in the bowl.

I like to put fresh basil on the top when serving.

You can serve it as is in a bowl, put it on top of spinach or rice, or even wrap it up in a tortilla and toast it ( I did the wrap yesterday for lunch, so good !)

So there you have it!

Have fun experimenting with your food. Spices are a great way to add flavor to anything.

choose the foods you love and create your own amazing meals❤️

⭐️I hope you found this post useful⭐️
