As it gets cold we start craving hearty dishes.  Now, these can be healthy, but we often find ourselves grabbing for comfort food.  This salad gives you a hearty, warming feeling while still being extremely  healthy.  Like vegan, gluten free, extra clean ingredients healthy.

The superstars of this dish: Pomegranate and hemp seeds give this dish (and any other salad) the perfect crunchy, sweet yet nutty flavor. 

Health Heroes: Think deep colors when choosing produce because of their antioxidants.  All of the fruits and vegetables in this salad are packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-carniogeneic properties.  Also, hemp seeds-they are filled with heart healthy fats.
