We often think of salad as the first dish of a real meal, or as the sole domain of the dieter. We ignore the fact that the salad is an infinitely customizable dish, full of flavor and nutrients, which can actually be quite satisfying. Eating a little salad every day provides a range of health benefits, including weight loss, but encompasses much more than that.
Salads may also not be healthy, depending on how you prepare them. Too much greasy salad dressing or cheese can kill some of the benefits. But we are not talking to you not to use tasty toppings. The key is in the proportion of the ingredients. The right balance of your favorite greens, vegetables, fruits and proteins creates an incredible flavor profile that doesn’t need a ton of salad dressing.
And don’t forget – if you don’t have the time or energy to make your own diverse salad at home, you can buy them prepared almost anywhere food is sold, including fast food restaurants. Still not convinced? We have a list of reasons why eating salad every day is a fantastic habit to buy.
