Colorful & Anti-Inflammatory Protein Salad

I follow a few recipe blogs and recently, I’ve been getting so many messages about summer salads. So, for lunch today, I decided to make a protein-packed colorful salad. I tried to grab all colors possible – white egg whites,  red tomatoes and peppers, orange turmeric powder, yellow sprouts, green cucumbers, and blue blueberries. Pretty successful in terms of the rainbow : ) It’s also anti-inflammatory since I added turmeric powder and fennel seeds. Therefore, it’s a perfect meal for a flat belly diet or someone looked to debloat. I used it as a lunch salad, but the portion size is definitely big enough to turn it into a more dinner side dish if you wanted!
