How To Create The Healthiest Salad

Step #1. Start with your GREENS!

Greens are the most important element of your salad. They have the most nutrients, cleansing properties, alkalizing, great for digestion and building healthy gut flora, and they are also the lowest in calories… so pack on greens.

You can use: arugula, spinach, kale, mix greens, endives, butterhead lettuce, romaine, and other kind of greens. Alternate your greens so you get a variety of flavors and nutrients.

Step #2. Add PROTEIN.

Plant based protein like beans is the best! Plant protein is free of saturated fat, cholesterol, low in calories and very high in fiber.

Use a variety of beans like: black, garbanzo, cannellini, fava, and red.

Step#3. Healthy FATS!

Healthy fats are fabulous for our digestion, our skin, and our brain. You can use avocado and your favorite nuts like walnuts, sunflower, pumpkin seeds, and almonds. As always alternate your fats to get all the benefits.

I use about ⅓ avocado and a handful of nuts in my salad.

Step #4. The RAINBOW! Finish your salad with a rainbow of colors using a variety of vegetables like: peppers (all colors), tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, mushrooms (yes, you can eat them raw), cauliflower, and broccoli florets. I also love to add a few green and kalamata olives and some basil or parsley for taste. Different colors in plants support different body function and our immune system, they are called phytochemicals.

Step #5. The finale! Healthy Dressing!

My favorite dressing is lemon and miso. I use ½ – 1 lemon or lime and 1-2 tsp low sodium miso.

Avoid all commercial dressings! They can turn your salad into a dangerous oil spill and they are filled with sugar. You can learn more about how to avoid oil spill in my previous post.
