Salad Power

It’s that time of year for…. SALADS!

Yeahhhh… Super size my salad please! 🙂

You see, eating a big ol’ bowl full of vegetables and plant based protein is completely satisfying.

Do you get enough greens in your diet? What kind of greens do you eat?

This is a great time to add new green vegetables to your diet. Whether they are raw, cooked, juiced, or blended- does not matter. Try new ways! If you don’t quite have the taste in your pallet for greens yet, keep trying and you will soon surprise yourself. The health promoting qualities are amazing: balance ph, essential fatty acids and minerals, enzymes,  antioxidants, and a variety of phyto-nutrients including beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.
