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

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

A meal with many nutrients

Including quinoa in our salad guarantees us a good intake of nutrients. Quinoa stands out for its high protein percentage (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 contribution of magnesium

Quinoa contains remarkable amounts of this mineral. Magnesium is responsible, among other functions, for maintaining 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 contribution of vitamin C

The juice of a single pomegranate has more than 40% of your daily vitamin C requirement. Vitamin C can break down when pasteurized, so choose homemade or fresh pomegranate juice to get the most nutrients.

Pumpkin to strengthen the immune system

Immunity: Plant foods, such as pumpkin, which are rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene offer a boost to our immune system thanks to their powerful combination of nutrients.
