Snack your way to pure confidence + win something!

Yeah, you can actually do that – snack your way to confidence!

Satisfy your womanly cravings without having to compromise your physical appearance and confidence.

Provided that snack is my awesome 3 bean confidence boosting salad, that is! ;)

Who says snacking must be unhealthy to be tasty? Who says snacking will cause indiscriminate weight gain & bad skin? Meh.

# – Beans can boost your confidence.

My 3 bean salad is addictive, ridiculously tasty, even more ridiculously easy to make and H E A L T H Y. Packed full of nutrients, antioxidants, good fats and fibres. Yums.

Besides, your friends and family will definitely shower you with compliments if you served them this.

How else to build up more confidence if not by accepting praises for your cooking prowess? At least, that’s how I build some of my confidence anyway, haha.

Without further ado, here’s how to make the salad:

# – The ingredients – 3 types of canned beans, 2 celery sticks, 1 green capsicum, 1 onion, olive oil, red wine vinegar (or balsamic), salt & pepper.

# – Slice up the celery, capsicum and onion.

# – Open up all the canned beans.

# – Pour the beans into a sieve or colander and rinse with water.

# – Pour the rinsed beans into a large salad bowl.

# – Followed by the sliced celeries, onion and capsicum.

# – Mix it up with a spoon. Set aside and start with making the salad dressing.

# – Pour 200ml of olive oil into a measuring jug. Then add 100ml of red wine vinegar.

# – Next, season with salt and pepper.

# – Whisk until emulsify (turn opaque in colour). The dressing is now done.

# – Pour dressing all over the bean mixture prepared earlier and stir to combine.

# – Awesome 3 bean salad, DONE! It can be eaten immediately but taste a lot better after chilling in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight :)

The 3 bean salad is a great replacement for carbohydrates like rice, noodles and potatoes too as they have extremely low glycemic index; giving your stomach the sensation of fullness without messing with your blood sugar levels so you can have stable sustained energy to go about your daily activities.

Of course, just eating healthy alone is not enough. Every woman should also adopt a good skincare routine along with a healthy diet. Only then pure confidence is attainable :)
