Meatless Monday Collard Greens with Mushrooms

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

Scott and I have been on the super healthy meals train for the past week, it was an indulgent Easter and we needed a few more vegetables in our life. So last week we were doing a detox, not one where you fast or juice but one where you are eating whole, delicious and nutritious foods. Lots of kale, spinach, chicken, salmon, pumpkin seeds, smoothies and fruits. We need it! I am feeling a heck of lot better and I noticed a lot more energy.


With a huge bag of collard greens in the fridge, mushrooms and a few other spices I came up with this great salad. It’s perfect for Meatless Monday and you really are getting a ton of nutrients in this dish. When you add in powerful spices like turmeric and cumin it is not lacking for flavor at all. A simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing makes it even better!
