How would you classify salads?

Making one simple change to your diet – adding a salad almost every day – can pay off with plenty of health benefits.

Eating salad almost every day may be one of the most healthy eating habits you can adopt — and one of the simplest, experts say.

Eating salads is a super-convenient way to work in a couple of servings of vegetables and/or fruit. Green salads are on the menu of almost every restaurant. And you can make a green salad at home in 5 minutes, armed with a bag of pre-washed salad greens, a few carrots or other veggies, and a bottle of light salad dressing. Not only that, but salads are cool, crunchy, and fun to eat (lots of textures, colors, and flavors). Most people enjoy eating salads–even kids! You can customize them to include the fruits and vegetables that appeal to you the most, and whichever ones you have on hand.

So, eat salads and load up on fiber. According to experts, eating more fiber can help you feel fuller, eat less, and ultimately lose weight.

Eat salads and get the benefits of both vegetables and fruits. For years, researchers have noted a link between eating lots of fruits and vegetables and lower risks of many diseases, particularly cancer.

These are only some of the benefits related to salads. To help you get started on this “habit”, here is a suggestion of a delicious salad Tavora Foods can help you prepare!
