How do you feel about warm salads? I’ve gotta say, I absolutely love them!

If you’re a salad fiend, you may have noticed raw vegetables can be a bit tough on your digestive system. All it takes is a quick steam or saute to soften up the fibers so that your GI tract processes them easier so that they don’t cause GI upset and the nutrients are better absorbed.

I find lightly sauteed hearty greens like kale and brussel sprouts make for a filling salad that is easy on the digestive system and so cozy and inviting during the fall and winter months. With fall rapidly approaching, I’ll be whipping up warm salads regularly for lunches and dinners.

This salad is loaded with goodies! Shredded brussels sprouts, kale, quinoa, California avocado, sliced pears, and toasted walnuts make up this nutritious texturally-pleasing dish. The whole thing is tied together with a simple bacon-cider vinaigrette for a straightforward yet comforting and nourishing meal.

Essentially, it checks all the boxes!

Creamy Tahini Spaghetti Squash with kale, zucchini and broccoli - a healthy paleo, vegan meal

I was raised under a carb-loving roof with the mindset that there just had to be something starchy with every meal or else it was considered more of a snack.

When I started eating paleo over seven years ago, my way of easing out of that mindset was through replacing bread, pasta, and white potatoes, with more nutritious sources like root vegetables and winter squash. For me, spaghetti squash has that cozy essence while being fairly low in carbohydrate, and it makes a paleo meal feel more complete. 

Plus, it is crazy-versatile (just take a gander through my spaghetti squash archives for all sorts of recipe inspiration).
