RECIPE: Wild Rice and Arugula Salad

Need to give your salad some girth without bulking up?

Wild Rice is the perfect grain to making your salad more filling without packing on pounds in the process.  Wild rice has twice the protein of brown rice, is high in fiber and essential minerals and vitamins.

The arugula bring the benefits of leafy greens.  It’s alkalinic and detoxifying, high in chlorophyll and antioxidants, and is anti-inflammatory.  Sun dried tomatoes deliver calcium and magnesium, which are great for cardiovascular health.  So this salad is a super hearty, super healthy serving of goodness!

      I know you’re not a dairy gal, but this would be good with an oil in lieu of cheese?!

    Wild rice can be hard to find. I use Trader Joe’s black rice.
