Instead of munching on romaine lettuce or iceberg, brim up your salad bowl with arugula, kale, and spinach to pack up thrice the amount of protein and twice the fiber. Marinated veggies often tend to have unhealthy preservatives, oil and heaps of sodium. Therefore, it is best to munch on a rich assortment of raw veggies.
Benefits: Discard cheese and delight your taste buds with avocado, a delicious treat that is one of the richest sources of the exceptionally beneficial monounsaturated fats, along with packing up heaps of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Instead of devouring crunchy raisins, toss some grapes into your salads as they promote greater satiety due to their rich water content.
Croutons are a popular salad item that people adore unbeknownst of the fact that it is actually a refined carb with empty calories and non-existent nutritional value. Instead, fix your salad with sunflower or pumpkin seeds, which are brimming with plant-based nutrients, healthy fats, protein, selenium, and the heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
