Hi Readers,

Today I will show yoImage result for deep green saladu how to spice up your salads by using a variety of ingredients! Salads can so many times be so repetitious that no one wants to consume them but that should not be the case to maintain optimal health and wellness.

Try adding these ingredients to your salads in different combinations.

Fruits- Apples, Pears, Mango, Grapes, Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Oranges, Tomatoes, Cucumbers

Vegetables- Carrots, Bell Pepper, Celery, Cabbage, Onion, Cilantro, Broccoli, Cauliflower

Greens- Spinach, Kale, Collards, Spring Mix

Nuts and Seeds- Walnuts, Pecans, Almonds, Peanuts, Pumpkin seeds, Sesame seeds, Chia

Protein- Beans,quinoa, tofu, nuts/seeds

My favorite way to spice up salad is to start with a bed of spinach/ spring mix and add chopped apple, orange, grapes, and top with nuts!

Here are some great recipes on a budget –salads for your wallet and plant based salads.

How do you like to create your salads?
