Katharine’s Greek God Salad


To go along with my recent post about the mental health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, I’m sharing this recipe for “Katharine’s Greek God Salad” from the “Cooking to Cure, A Nutritional Approach to Anxiety and Depression” book. It is a delicious, colorful salad that is highly anti-inflammatory and high in calcium, potassium, selenium, vitamin D, vitamin E, as well as many other important mental health nutrients and has 80% of your daily requirement for vitamin B12! And all for just over 400 calories.
