Spice up your Salad!

Salads can easily get boring. I’ve actually let a lot of lettuce go bad in my fridge because I didn’t want another boring salad- fortunately salads are easy to change up! I recently switched from romaine to spinach – even just simply switching your greens can make things more interesting. Since salads are such a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into one meal- don’t cut them out of your meal plan! 

the salad I had for lunch yesterday:
 spinach, tomatoes, peppers, avocado, strawberries, grilled chicken, & balsamic


Here are a few other options to add some spice to your salad:


almond slivers
pecans
seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, etc)
beans (black or kidney)
boiled eggs
avocado
peppers 
chicken 
fish
quinoa 
shrimp
lean strips of beef 
red onion 
apples
strawberries
mandarine oranges
cherry tomatoes
olives
salsa
