Ideal salads for a light dinner full of nutrients and vitamins, thanks to wonderful ingredients like quinoa, pumpkin and pomegranate.

Salads are generally a highly sought-after resource, especially because of the high number of different preparations, and also because they adapt to different needs and diets.

A nutrient-dense meal

Including quinoa in our salad guarantees us a good supply of nutrients. Quinoa stands out for its high percentage of protein (13.81%-21.9%). It is also high in essential amino acids, making it one of the few plant-based foods with high-quality protein.

Quinoas and their magnesium intake

Quinoa contains remarkable amounts of this mineral. Magnesium is responsible, among other functions, for maintaining the proper functioning of the intestines, muscles and nerves, it also participates in the regulation of cardiac contraction, improves the immune systemand is also part of bones and teeth.

Pomegranate and its vitamin C content

The juice of just one pomegranate contains over 40% of your daily vitamin C needs. Vitamin C can break down when pasteurized, so choose homemade or fresh pomegranate juice to get the most nutrients.

Pumpkin to boost the immune system

Immunity: Plant foods, like pumpkin, which are rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene, boost our immune system with their powerful combination of nutrients.
