Salads are NOT boring or tasteless! If they are, you probably are not making your salad well. Salads should be light, fresh, easy to digest and make very abundant meals.
My salad recipes are full of tasty ingredients, different varieties and textures. You can do them the day before and take them with you to work or school. Also, if you are looking at your weight, you will know exactly what you have put into it.
The advice for making a balanced, healthy and delicious salad is simple, take a large bowl and combine:
1) One serving of carbohydrates (1/2 cup)
Pasta, rice, couscous, bulgarian wheat, quinoa, potatoes, bread, etc.
* The leftovers are perfect for this!
2) One serving of protein (3oz / 85g)
Any meat, chicken, slices of ham, chorizo, any fish, tuna / salmon, eggs, seafood, cheese, beans, tofu, tempeh, etc.
3) Many fresh vegetables and fruits
So many fruits and vegetables of your choice, serve in abundance.
4) A selection of herbs or sparks
Fresh herbs such as mint, parsley, basil or cilantro.
Any seed (sunflower, pumpkin or flax seed), nuts (walnuts, pistachio or almond), dried fruit (raisins, apricot or sultanas) or olives.
** Eat seeds, nuts and nuts in moderation, as they are high in calories.
5) Light salad dressing
Make your own use of a combination of lemon / lime / honey / olive oil / rice vinegar / balsamic vinegar, etc.
Rice Salad with Mango and Rice and Tuna Salad with Chickpeas with Spices are just two of my favorites. Test them, experiment with your own combination and share your images with me on Instagram and Facebook. All the best!
