Health benefits of eating salad
They are all very often attached to boring, soft, uninterrupted and wet bowls, which are apparently good for us.
To make our life better, to eat in large part what I had eaten and to realize it was point, I am ready to show what salad really can be.
first goal was to explain to steak boyfriend husband that the salad is more than the iceberg salad and may be super satisfactory too.
Good that did not take long
Although I can not take all the credit … the vibrant and beautiful color of Mother Nature worked a lot for me
The taste I was responsible for however, and in doing so, I changed husband’s life for the better as well.
That was a pretty awesome feeling!
Months later and I’m doing this exact thing for individuals far and wide; inspiring them to eat well, look good and feel great, the motto and mantra that really hit me hard in 2012.
Eating wholefoods changed life.
I became leaner, happier, more energised and balanced. hair was shinier, skin glowed and I slept like a baby.
Eating as nature made it and not the factory – whilst making it taste damn good at the same time!
Teaching people about meal prep, the enormous benefits of organisation when it comes to eating
well and how to love the food that loves you has been a fabulous journey,
seeing the truly transformative effect that it has on lives is such an honour.
So the humble salad, a recipe or two
Salads can be as simple or complex as your imagination allows and within minutes you’ve got a highly nutritious, nourishing and delicious meal, what’s not to love!
Although salads don’t always contain 100% raw ingredients, the addition of more raw foods into diet has been one of the most significant and beneficial nutritional steps I’ve ever taken.
making salads more exciting
1. Texture – Think of adding some different textures, which bring your senses to light!
Lack of nut, nuts, seeds or crispy salads can also be baked, soft vegetables or tomato and can be delicious avocado or cheese
2. Laying – a bag of mixed salad leaves and 3 cherry tomatoes on your plate, Return it back and think about how you want to enjoy the first of the salad, it is probably the least of the greens and low-fat Mediterranean vegetables. Salad often contains a small amount of ingredients
3. Coverage – Prepare the salad well and if necessary take
your hand there – no one enjoys dry leaves!
4. Herbs, herbs, herbs – For taste, for interest, more mallier for health.
I often do not include a green leafy vegetable in salad (shock horror!) And I use different types of herbs which provide green content and giant flavor
Instead of the salad ingredients avocado, coriander, semi-hard boiled egg, super finely chopped radish and processed and icky dressing, I use different plants and walnuts – False MacDamia oil.
Particularly presenting “unpleasant” recipes such as curd dressing and clean
versions using great herbs, there are other ways to move the salad to a whole new level.
Herbs are especially given below, the charts release antioxidant properties, they are cheap,
easy to find and once added to the salad, the need for complex dressing is a matter of the past.
Most salads are a main food and to ensure that it is important to be adequate to nourish and satisfy so that it is often as simple as adding to quinoa or gram.
Delicious high protein substitute such as eggs, chicken, steak and cheese are also regular favorites.
Healthy food is not just about salad, although it is the property of 2 owners to be able to eat well, feel good and get great for a busy lifestyle
Preparation and simplicity.
Eating well has become too complicated and out of people’s reach when this needn’t be the case. Prepare the basics for a couple of hours each week and invest in some good tupperware containers. When you’re preparing any of your meals, just grab the baked vegetables, hard-boiled eggs and quinoa, add in some fresh, raw ingredients and you’re ready! Taking a simplistic approach to food isn’t boring and what it means is you can include these whole foods in their natural state, reap their nutritional benefits and still enjoy delicious food at the same time.
And it works! The benefits are infinite and I’d love for you to try this out for yourself.
