HEALTHY RECIPES x PROTEIN PASTA SALAD (80g)

 

 

As a plant-based eater, you have to get creative with your meal prep ideas for a healthy dose of calories, carbs, protein and fiber. In this recipe, I wanted to focus on all four of those nutrients to create a solid post-workout meal. This can even be used as a "pasta dinner" meal option the the night-before you have a strenuous fitness activity the following day. I also gave you guys TWO dairy-free creamy dressing options to include in the recipe!

1/2 Cup Silken Tofu x2 = 10g's per cup = 20 Grams
