Arugula aids in digestion, detoxifies the body, and improves vision, while turmeric is an antioxidant that can elevate mood and decrease inflammation. This dish is high in protein, nutrient-dense, rich in fiber and versatile since other vegetables can be substituted. It can be refrigerated for up to five days, and reheats well in the microwave. Pairs beautifully with papaya or berries.
