Turn Your Salad
The summer season is an excellent time to enjoy a variety of salads made from fresh farm products. Salads can be more than a side dish. They can make delicious meals low in calories and rich in nutrients. However, in spite of yourself you could sabotage the perfect food by covering them with bacon bits, croutons, oily, creamy fillings, sausage and cheese fats.
For salads retain their interest, change it frequently ingredients. Spice up your salad toppings and choose nutritious and low-fat salad dressings to make salads with real choices for healthy heart.
Use dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, watercress, lettuce, red, aragula and basil leaves to get the best nutritional value. Darker leaves contain more vitamins and fiber and should form the basis of most salads.
