Healthy Salad

Eat Better, Feel Better.

Not all salads are boring and not all salads are healthy. If you make a salad and load it with fats, mayonnaise, etc. then it is not a healthy salad.

Healthy salad must include green leafy vegetables, fruits, veggies, low carb food, and grains like quinoa. But you don’t have to make it bland, add some tangy healthy dressing to it and enjoy a tasty meal. Keep the calories and fat content to the salad low and the nutrition and proteins content high.

Here is a list of 10 Healthy Salad Recipes that are so appetizing that you can literally have it every day.
