Teriyaki tofu salad with tahini dressing

A convenient option for lunch on working days might be a rather unhealthy option. It takes discipline to eat well but the good news is that it only takes 21 days to form a habit. And that is about 15 work lunches. Try to challenge yourself to take control of your diet and eat healthier. I know the recipe posted is a salad but that does not imply that eating healthy means having a salad for every meal. If you like pasta, go for it. Fuck carbs and all they say. But making it yourself means you are aware of what you are eating and you are in control. 

INGREDIENTS

Salad

2 cups raw mix ( Mesclun mix with spinach )
1/4 cherry tomatoes
1/4 raw corn kernels
1/4 Japanese cucumber (cubed )
2 kings oyster mushroom sliced and toasted for around 15 minutes
1 teriyaki tofu cubed ( I just toasted my tofu for around twenty minutes with a store bought teriyaki sauce )

Dressing

1/4 cup tahini
1/12 cup plain yogurt ( not greek yogurt as it is too thick )
2 teaspoon lemon juice
Garlic powder
Dash of black pepper
Salt to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

1) Mix up the ingredients for the dressing till well combined. Add to salad and you are ready to go! I usually pack my dressing separately in a tiny ziplock to prevent the salad from getting soggy.
