One of our recent fall salads we served at our fundraiser that has been receiving rave reviews from our donors and our clients! In addition to this salad being packed with antioxidants, wild rice has TWICE the protein than brown rice and is an excellent clean protein source.
WILD RICE: A wonderfully nutritious gluten-free grain and that has twice the protein then brown rice. It is very rich in antioxidants – containing up to 30 times more then white rice. It is also high in fiver and a good source of essential minerals such as folate, zinc and phosphorus to give you energy and nurture your bones.
WINTER SQUASH: High in Vitamin A, winter squash, like butternut or delicate, is an important food source for antioxidants like carotenoids that help to fight cancer. Although high in carbohydrates, the carbs in winter squash have antioxidant anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties.
