Lilly’s easy and healthy steak salad recipe

Lilly shares her healthy steak salad recipe

Cook Lilly’s recipe for dinner and enjoy left overs for lunch

Meet Lilly. Lilly is a lovely work mate of mine for only eight more days until I finish up and start my adventure travelling around Australia. Strangely enough, Lilly is also about to head off on her own journey, following her dream to become a teacher and start full time study.

Today, Lilly’s lunch looked so delicious I was inspired to share it. If you cook this for dinner you’re likely to have left overs to enjoy for lunch the following day. That’s my kind of recipe! Did I mention it’s also wheat and refined sugar free?..
