Have you ever wondered why there is always an inclusion of salads when people are trying to loose weight? Here are some of the reasons why salads are a part of Nadirah Heal-Thee Network weight loss and weight management success!
1. Low in Calories: A Clean Salad, such as a garden salad will always be “calorie counting” friendly. Just don’t saturate it in ranch dressing, and pile on the bacon bits, and cheddar cheese.
2. Clean Eats: The combination of crisp veggies and lean protein makes for clean eats! If you use a hint of lemon juice, with olive oil as salad dressing then you know you have not ruined your diet goals.
3. Helps you stay full: Most salads are packed with lettuce, spinach, and other nutrient rich vegetables like cucumbers, celery, and peppers. These vegetables are full of water which will make you feel full when they are digested.
4. Convenient, you can get them almost anywhere: It doesn’t matter where you have to go, or where you’re going, salads are every where! You can get a great salad from a fast food restaurant, or a four star restaurant. You can even get a salad at a coffee shop, or in a gas station!
Here’s a recipe for one of my favorite salads:
5 partially raw or grilled shrimp
1 cup of spinach and kale greens chopped
half cucumber chopped
half red pepper chopped
handful of pumpkin seeds
2 tsp. of flax seed oil
2 tsp. of olive oil
4 tsp. apple cider vinegar
Preparation: Grab a bowl and mix it all together! Enjoy!!
