Higher Learning with LAKA: A Simple Summer Salad Recipe

Or, as LAKA Living calls it, “The Future of Salad Is Female…”

We’re continuing our wellness series with LAKA with a simple yet delicious salad recipe. Though the concept of a summer salad is hardly new, what better way to up your game than with vitamin-C infused tahini and medicinal mushrooms, the latter providing a potent source of antioxidants and amino acids, while oxygenating cells to support mental and physical balance.
