Ella’s food solution for…Emotional eating

IMG_3681

Research has shown that emotional eaters are very much affected by the texture of food not just the taste. When feeling angry, people often choose crunchy foods so I’ve put together a delicious salad which would allow you to crunch away that anger without making unhealthy choices.

I actually bought these vegetable kebabs on offer at M&S but they would also be very easy to put together yourself. Mine have butternut squash, courgette, red pepper and corn on which you can really get your teeth into!

The salad mix then contains crunchy iceberg lettuce as well as some rocket, cucumber, spring onion, tomatoes, beetroot, radish, red pepper and pine nuts. I have also included sun-dried tomatoes for their delicious flavour and moisture and some jalapeños to add a little kick.

This colourful and crunchy salad was so delicious. It’s always a good idea to keep in salad bits as they can be incorporated into lots of different variations.
