Zesty peppery and bitterly fresh,arugula is a rich vegetable full of antioxidants,vitamins and other essential minerals good for your health.Arugula ‘s richness in flavour and texture makes them a versatile vegetable that can go well in lots of dishes be it soups,pizzas,sandwiches but I find them best enjoyed fresh in a salad.
Being an elite athlete myself,it’s high nitrate supllemantation is what makes arugula a darling of mine,alongside beets,arugula has a high nutritional nitrate content responsible for oxygen efficiency in our body,this leads to longer productive training sessions,coupled with low fatigue levels
Arugula can be enjoyed on its own but it’s bitterly peppery flavours are best complimented by the sweetness from the sweet potato.A root vegetable itself,the humble sweet potato comes packed with healthy sugars,dietary fibres and nutrients.This salad will take you little time to prepare,is light on your tummy and will provide you with the energy and nutrients to get you through your day.This will be perfect as a pre workout meal paired with a sandwich of choice.The roasted potatoes hold the dressing well and can be carried to work for healthy snacking.
