Salads arn’t for the rabbits!
In my home, salads are considered whole meals. Think about it. Grab some greens, peppers, beans, and sprouts, and you have the potential for a kick-ass, nutrient rich, filling meal.
Things to Add to Your Salad (you don’t have to place everything on the list in your salad. This is just to show you a salad can be a lot more than lettuce and tomatoes.)
- Spinach leaves
- Romaine lettuce
- Black beans
- Kidney beans
- Green peas
- Beets (love these)
- Red Peppers
- Yellow Peppers
- Green Peppers
- Purple Onions (avoid if you’re on a date with kissing potential)
- Tofu (grill it, cube it, buy it prepackaged and seasoned even)
- Almond Slivers
- Walnut Slivers
The list really does go on and on! Some evenings, when I’m craving Mexican cuisine, I make my version of a Mexican Salad. I use prepackaged romaine lettuce, black beans, corn, a serving of brown rice (you can buy the instant kind if you really want to save time-just check the fiber content), salsa and avocado slices. Easy, right? If you like the vegetarian meat sold in the health section at stores, you can buy that, heat it, and top it on top of greens. Be creative! As long as you are choosing healthy toppings, you really can’t go wrong.
