Eat Healthy Yet Keep Variety
Salads are very healthy, but they can get boring if
you don’t add a little creativity and switch
them up a bit. Use the charts below for inspiration
and build a different salad every night of the year.
Start with a base of leafy greens, from which there
are now so many to choose from (and you should
really try them all). Then get experimental while
adding protein, healthy fats, colors, etc. Once the
salad is complete, find a salad dressing from the
table below to make a dressing to complement the
flavors you’ve used in your salad.
Sure, you could just choose a bag of salad that is
already put together for you. They are convenient,
but there are a few concerns that should be pointed
out. Not only is it more expensive to use a pre-made
salad, but bagged salads have a shorter shelf life
since the vegetables have been washed and chopped
before being stored in bags. And, even though bagged
salads have generally been pre-washed, we always
recommend washing any fruit or vegetable before use.
