Lazy dinner: garbage salad

One of my go-to quick meals is the "garbage salad" - usually based on a lean protein (chicken, shrimp, fish or tofu), a leafy green (parsley, kale, spinach or baby bok choi), a small serving of some kind of bean (usually edamame, lentils, kidney beans or chickpeas), a nut or seed (usually chia seeds, flax, walnuts or pine nuts), cherry tomatoes, celery, onions (I always have these at home, so they're a given) and something sugary (beets, bamboo, apple, pear or pineapple... the opportunities are obviously endless).

Nutritional stats for this one: 309 calories, 41 g carbs, 34 g protein, 5 g fat, 11 g fiber, 20 g sugar, 151 mg sodium.
