Take my advice: Healthy reasons to eat Salad every day

Take my advice: Healthy reasons to eat Salad every day


I was looking for healthy meals to lose weight, healthy meals cheap and they are healthy meals quick to prepare. The answer came so quickly: Any Nutrition Expert will tell me that Eating salad almost every day may be one of the most healthy eating habits that I can adapt to -- and one of the simplest. 

I came to the conclusion that most people enjoy eating salads because they are cool, crunchy, and fun to eat (lots of textures, colors, and flavors). 


  • Eating a high-fiber diet can help lower cholesterol levels and prevent constipation.
  • Eating green salads, you'll likely have higher blood levels of a host of powerful antioxidants (vitamin C and E, folic acid, lycopene, and alpha- and beta-carotene
  • If losing weight is your goal, you may want to start your meals with a green salad. Studies have shown that eating a green salad of 150 calories or less, enhances satiety (feelings of fullness) and reduces the total number of calories eaten during the meal.
I'm Argentinian, leaving today in Israel, my tradition is to have every meal with a salad.  To me my basic salad is "ensalada de tomates y cebollas "   - sliced tomatoes, raw onions, oil, vinegar, and a pinch of salt.

As I said, today I'm leaving in Israel, my daily salad has been changed a little, to Israeli Tomato and Cucumber SaladChopped tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, and parsley combine with a drizzled dressing of lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and mint leaves.
