In my constant search how to inspire people to live healthier and happier life, I want to invite you to join me in this one week challenge. All you need to do is eat one salad a day as a main course or as a side dish to add more fresh crunch to your meals. I am dropping some suggestions only, change and adjust to your liking. Opt to use as a dressing good quality olive oil, fresh lemon juice, mustard fresh/ dry herbs. I believe in non-waste attitude and opt to use my veggies in multiple forms and combination.
If you need more recipes or ideas, DM me or visit my IG cool_with_Dessi
Adding nuts or seeds to the salad gives a nice crunch plus healthy oils, adding dry fruits adds some sweetness and makes us chew more, prolonging the meal time. When we eat slower we feel fuller with less food. Plus adding colourful ingredients makes the plate very pretty and appealing.
