Eating Healthy When You’re In A Hurry
No Cooking and Easy To Prepare – Save Time Without Sacrificing Nutrition
The recipe is adjustable, so that you can add ingredients you have on hand, that don’t require cooking. Vegetables such as carrots and beets require more prep time, since you’ll have to either grate or slice them into bite size pieces. The point is to save time without sacrificing nutrition. Choose veggies that are quicker to prepare from the list of ingredients.

How much of each ingredient you use depends on your preferences. The more
