Motivation Minute – How to Make a Healthy Salad
3 Comments


Salads can be the most healthy way to lunch.
It can also be the most high fat and high calorie, it’s all how you make it. To start
with making a healthy salad, we’re going to start with our dark green lettuce, full of
spinach, full of fibre. We want to fill our salad with lots of fresh vegetables like cucumber,
some tomatoes. By topping our salad with lots of fresh vegetables for helping to fill us
up, but not add a lot of calories. Shredded carrots, broccoli, all great ways to fill
up your salad, low cup on fibre, and antioxidants. But we want to make sure we’re limiting some
of the high fat, high calorie toppings such as croutons, cheese, bacon bits. For our protein
today, we’re going to add some beans, if they have fresh fruits you can also top your salad
with some fresh fruits. And we’ll get some added protein by adding some turkey, little
bit of egg, and just a dab of our shredded cheese. And last but not the least remember not to
overdo the dressings. Dressing can really make a difference on your salad. Choosing
a low fat or a fat free dressing can save yourself some calories, or if you’re going
to choose a full fat dressing, maybe deep it on the side using your fork and remember
that healthy salads are great way to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into your
day.
