Salad, Salad, Salad!

Salad, salad, salad!

We can help you eat more salad

It’s no secret that a diet filled with delicious fruits and vegetables helps you maintain a healthy lifestyle—and one with a little longevity. Sometimes it’s hard to make the right choice at mealtime. We get that. Especially if you’ve seen our dessert menu!

Incorporating salad into your daily diet is an excellent way to work in a few servings of fruits and vegetables without giving it much thought.

Why even bother with salad? Well, we think they are delicious on their own, or an addition to any meal, but they are also full of essential vitamins and nutrients. Here are four healthy advantages that will make you want to eat more of those leafy greens:

You get the smart fats.

Eating a little good fat with your veggies (like monounsaturated fat found in olive oil, avocado and nuts) helps your body absorb protective phytochemicals.

You get more roughage.

Eating a high-fiber diet can help lower cholesterol levels and prevent constipation.

You get plenty of health benefits.

It’s a good thing that fruits and vegetables are popular salad ingredients! It’s a well-known fact that they contribute to overall health. (Click here to see just how awesome avocados are!)

Frequently eating salad will increase your store of antioxidants that help protect the body against damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals. There is also a link between eating lots of fruits and vegetables and lowering the risk of many diseases, including cancer.

You increase satisfaction & can cut calories.

If losing weight is a goal, studies have shown that eating a low-calorie first course, like a green salad with 150 calories or less, will enhance your feeling of fullness and reduce the total number of calories you eat during the entire meal.

A bigger salad is even better! Stuff your salad with good fats, fruits, veggies, protein, nuts, and seeds, and you’ve got yourself one tasty, nutritious meal that will keep you satisfied until your next meal. (Hint: it’s a great option for lunch!)
