Let’s face it, we know that salads are not only colorfully beautiful, but they also are great for our health.
What is in a healthy salad
Salads can be filled with disease-fighting phytonutrients,antioxidants and loads of fiber. The fact is, it’s not just all about leafy greens and vegetables either.
Some of my favorite things to put in a salad are greens like spinach, romaine, kale, and arugula.
Other great veggie options include tomatoes, shredded carrots, diced celery, cucumber slices, broccoli florets, cauliflower, and so much more!
Grains, beans, & fruit
A great salad can be piled high with grains like brown rice, millet, or bulgur. Other great additions are protein-packed beans and energizing and refreshing fruit.
Some of the fruits that I love to add to my salad are canteloupe, honeydew melon, strawberries, mango, and mandrin orange slices.
