Better Than Greek Salad

Greek Salad, Modern Food Stories, Food Photographer, vegan Greek salad

Hey guys, have I got a treat for you today. My Vegan Better than Greek Salad. I love how speedy and simple this salad is to prepare and yet so utterly delicious. It’s grain free, low carb and full of healthy fats thanks to the nut cheese and avocado which will help to keep your blood sugar levels stable and stop you reaching for the snack drawer between meals.

Greek Salad Goes Vegan

When I make this for myself I like to use vegan cheese (my latest favourite is from New Roots because it’s just cashews, water, vegan cultures and salt… no legumes or binders which can play havoc with your gut) but it also tastes delicious with feta if you can tolerate dairy. I make variations of both depending on who i’m cooking for.

REBALANCE YOUR GUT, BODY AND MIND

I’ll be making a vegan version on the retreat in October at Wild View Retreat. There’s a few places left if you’d love to come and join me. It’s set in the peace and tranquility of a stunning mountain wilderness in Corgas Bravas, Algarve, Portugal. Breath taking uninterrupted 360° wild views with no towns, no houses, no roads, no people for as far as the eye can see!

Join me for a week of rebalancing yoga with Mollie Mendoza from Unmind, live music from singer songwriter Sam Garret and delicious plant based, vegan food like this Vegan Greek Salad from me to reset your gut and restore your energy levels.

What’s more there’s the most incredible yoga deck, an infinity pool, and as a thank you for all your amazing support, use the code WVR20 at the checkout for 20% off.
