Tip 8: Say Yes to Salads
Salads have the potential to be a Healthy Habit gold mine, rich in fruits, vegetables, and nutritional value. But we’re not talking about salads with a leaf of iceberg, and loads of bacon, cheese, and ranch. We’re talking dark green leafy beds with colorful, crunchy toppings.
• Start one meal a day with a small salad. Get creative. One cup of leafy greens + 1/2 cup of fruit or veggie toppings = 2 servings.
• Alternate your greens from the normal Romaine or iceberg… for general rule of thumb, the darker the greens the more nutrient rich they are.
