Healthy High Protein Spinach Cranberry Salad with Walnuts

With last minute holiday shopping, who has time to sit down for a healthy meal? It seems all too often we end up eating at the food court or eating on the run at this time of the year. This simple salad is delicious and high in protein which makes it filling. Here’s the best part, it can be ready in less than ten minutes.

And if you have last minute baking to do before the relatives arrive, this recipe lends itself to my healthy homemade cinnamon cranberry bread with walnuts. Simply make the bread, and add the leftover cranberries and walnuts to it. Eat healthy, stay healthy even during the holidays, no excuses.
