Salads can be your best friend or your worst enemy, depending on what goes in them!
So let's talk about the healthy stuff about them. Dark leafy greens pack a lot of nutrients such as vitamins A, C , E, and K, which help support your immune system, protect bones and keep your cardiovascular system healthy. Dark leafy greens are also packed with fiber, which help with your digestion!
Some healthy add-ins with salads include proteins such as chicken/turkey breast, chunk light tuna, or salmon. Some vegetarian alternatives include beans, legumes, or egg whites for protein.
Healthy fats help your body absorb the nutrients in your salad. You can use your salad dressing of choice (but don't drench your salad in it), or you can use olive oil, sunflower seeds, almonds or walnuts.
