What’s not to love about a good, healthy salad?? I love salads because I can add just about anything to a salad and make it exactly the way I want it. I can add some taste with a low fat dressing and I can add some color by cutting up all sorts of healthy veggies and adding them to it. I eat salads at work everyday because they give me an added burst of energy and they can behttp://www.flickr.com/photos/ahmad incredibly nutritious if made right! pi/2421458561 /
Take a 4 oz. Greek salad that contains feta cheese, tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers. This particular salad contains approximately 9 grams of fat andonly 3 grams are saturated fat. Saturated fat is the most unhealthy type of fat out there and because less than half of the fat content in this salad is saturated fat, this would be a healthy choice to make……plus it tastes AMAZING!!! http://www.flickr.com/photos/ric_w/878997543/

A couple of the benefits of vitamin C include protection to your immune system and protection from cardiovascular diseases. Many people drink orange juice for it’s vitamin C content but I would much rather eat a healthy salad!!
Salads aren’t for everybody of course. If Greek salads aren’t your thing, you could always go for a seasoned turkey taco with lettuce, tomato, shredded carrots and avocado and add an orange to the side for some added vitamin C.http://www.flickr.com/photos/pjcondon/2247944908/
