How To Make A Salad

  • Pick your base.  I usually use mixed greens (mustard greens, arugula, dandelion greens, kale, spinach etc)
  • Pick your protein.  This can be eggs, chicken, turkey, tuna, tofu, tempeh, rice & beans...the list goes on but my fave is usually poached chicken or salmon
  • Pick some complimentary fibre filled veggies like peppers, carrots, celery, tomatoes, snap peas etc.  The more rainbow like the better!
  • Pick your healthy fats.  Avocado is delicious and surefire for adding flavour.  Assorted nuts & seeds will also add a satiating quality (meaning you feel fuller).  Top with some flaxseeds or sunflower seeds for extra minerals like Zinc as well as essential fats.  Caveat: don't overdo it on the fats.  Fat still packs a hefty caloric punch so a little goes a long way.
  • Choose your dressing, but if you have already added fats try to avoid extra oils.  See my Detox Dressing for inspiration.
