Importance of Green Salad in Your Diet

Many of us already know how good green vegetables are for our health, but sometimes it's hard to incorporate them into our daily diet except in the form of a green salad, and often that's made of iceberg lettuce which is hardly green at all.

In any diet the hardest part is the transition to the new diet. It is hard to switch to Candida free diet. In our contemporaneous world, all of us, used to fast food's and drive thru's, pre-packaged and processed food, are getting very hard to make the transition to fresh veggies, leafs and fruits.

The Fruit Salad is often considered as an appetizer and as a nutritious meal item, both of which are true but also false. A fruit salad is a collection of chosen fruits ranging from citrus, bananas, apples, pears, pineapples, grapes, cherries, and sometimes dairy products like yogurt or sherbet.

You now wish you would have grabbed a handful of almonds or walnuts or eaten a salad loaded with fresh veggies, nuts, and marinated tofu to get you through your "rough patch." Eating and adopting a vegetable and fruit based diet eliminates and puts an end to the inter-dependent unhealthy food relationship.

Eating a salad every day offers numerous health benefits. It is one of the simplest and healthiest food habits that anyone can commit to. Salads are easy to make and they bring us a few steps closer to our recommended daily serving of fruit and vegetables.

Salsa was proven at the Oxford Institute to stimulate the metabolism approximately 15 to 20%. It's also America's number 1 condiment now. You can throw it on anything from baked potatoes and scrambled eggs to beans and even veggies. It's going to help because it is a natural thermogenic food that increases your metabolism. Of course, the hotter the better, but only choose what best suits your taste buds.

The salad itself consists of Iceberg Lettuce, some celery, sliced cucumbers mixed with a little baby spinach. I mix a handful of the colorful bag salads from the grocery store in just to give it a little color and varying texture. The main ingredient in my salad is the Iceberg Lettuce.

Another wonderful low fat and low calories dressing you can start using for a healthier salad is a wonderful tarragon and blue cheese salad dressing. Just a bit of blue cheese is enough to add great flavor to this dressing.
