These healthy bites are a cinch to make too.  They are vegan, gluten free AND paleo friendly as well!  I hope you love them as much as we did.  Ours didn’t even last one day.

If you want to add even more nutrition, you can also add chia, flax or seeds to these. If you choose to do that, you may need to adjust the liquids as well.

I used roasted and unsalted cashew butter when making these.  If you use unsalted, I suggest adding a little salt to the recipe.  Maybe a pinch?

Marcus is OBSESSED with arugula. He ate this entire salad in one sitting.  It’s that GOOD. I promise you will love it too.

This salad is filled with healthy ingredients and it has a lemon dressing that brightens it up even more.  I also LOVE to add avocado to all my salads.  Makes them extra delicious + you get the healthy fats to keep you full longer.
