How to Make a Salad

Salad

Did you know that a salad can be a whole meal that leaves you feeling full and healthy. Salad isn’t just about a few bland lettuce leaves that leaves you feeling hungry in half an hour. It’s so much more than that. You just have to build it properly.

Base: choose spinach, lettuce or baby kale – anything green and leafy

Good Fat: choose nuts (pine nuts, pistachios or pepitas), avocado or olive oil – don’t skimp on the fats, they are essential for good health

Carbs: my favourite is roasted sweet potato – again don’t skimp on carbs just make sure they are in their whole natural form i.e. wholegrains for sustained energy

Protein: choose quinoa, chicken, salmon, tuna or chick peas – protein is what will keep you feeling full so choose a good organic source

Colour: add tomatoes, capsicum, carrot, red cabbage, roasted or raw beetroot, zucchini, cucumber, celery, grated apple, fennel, radish and mushroom – anything you have in your fridge basically

Dressing: choose hummus, mashed avocado, lemon or lime juice, tamari, tahini or olive oil – give it as much flavour as possible

What’s in your favourite salad?
