Going Green

A salad means different things to different people. For some it is rabbit food eaten only if you are some sort of a freak! Many feel there is no point of living a young, healthy life if all the fun is taken out of eating. For them, salads are not fun.

Here’s Why Should We Eat Salads:
Firstly, they are delicious. Anyone who has eaten a salad knows that it is great way to mix completely different kinds of textures, foods and flavors in one meal. In salads, one can mix nuts (almonds, pinenuts, walnuts, and the like), green crunchy leaves (great texture), cereals like boiled corn, beans, peas, potatoes; or one can add some proteins like boiled egg, delicious and flavorful herbs like basil, oregano, mint and holy basil.

You can toss these aromatic and refreshing ingredients with a salad dressing, which can be anything from honey, lemon juice or balsamic vinegar (takes the salad to another level).

Contrary to what people believe, salads are very filling, and once potato or pasta, beans, corn or egg is added, it is a complete meal in itself. Eating a salad, besides being very refreshing, also keep one full.

Salads are healthy! We all know that but why? Because it has fiber, (to keep constipation and diseases away), is loaded with enzymes (which keep you looking young) and has truckloads of vitamins and minerals thanks to nuts and greens. It has medicinal properties if fresh herbs are added to it.

Salads are ideal for people who don’t like to eat heavy lunches or dinners that make them feel bloated, lethargic or plain lazy. Therefore, they make a great choice for a business or working lunch. At least you will be awake after eating to conduct the business! Also, raisins, apricots, prunes, figs are not only rich in minerals but also are great alkalinizes (making the body alkaline, according to Ayurveda, healthy).

Salads are incredibly easy to make, and even a moron chef can whip up a great salad.
