Nourishing Summer Salad Jars

By BePure

Preparing a beautiful, nourishing salad jar to take to school or work for lunch can be a quick, easy, and cost effective way to pack in a wide range of nutrients and foods to support the diversity of our gut bacteria, and wellbeing of our whole beings.

We are all unique, and so are our dietary requirements for feeling happy and healthy in our skin. Some people operate better fuelled by a more carb-heavy diet, others lean more towards the protein end of spectrum, and some people are right in the middle, and function best with an equal amount of both.

If you're not sure which combination of foods support you in feeling your best, you can take the BePure Macronutrient Profile Test, to begin the journey to finding out.

This recipe is more of a formula, which you can adapt to fit your specific needs, as well as what you happen to have sitting in the fridge. Salad jars are very generous user-uppers of leftovers. There's something for everyone!

We have aimed to pick ingredients that support the management of inflammation in the body, and promote feeling and looking well.
