Looking to amp up your nutrition?
Salads are an ideal way to get your daily serving of greens and veggies. Plus you won’t end up having to wash a bunch of dishes or heat up the kitchen with a hot oven. During the warmer months, just grab a bowl and throw in your colorful ingredients. Add a healthy dressing and you’re off!
Fit tip = fire up your grill on a Sunday afternoon and prepare some grilled chicken, fish, shrimp or steak. These will make great protein-packed additions to your salads throughout the week.
