Why you should eat more salads
According to the CDC, only 1 in 10 Americans meet the federal fruit or vegetable recommendations. 1 in 10. Let that sink in. The average recommended intake is 2-3 cups for adults. Most of us don't reach this within a week, which is pretty alarming. Vegetables are nutritious, help with digestion, and prevent the risk of chronic disease. I like to incorporate one vegetable-heavy meal in a day to make sure I hit the minimum at the very least. Salads are a great way to combine carbs (veggies), fats (oils), and protein. You can combine many different vegetables and sautée them if you don't prefer raw veggies. Here is one of my go-to salad recipes!
1/2 red pepper
1/2 yellow pepper
2 hard-boiled eggs
Avocado oil + Italian seasoning (dressing)
Chop up all of your vegetables.
Store the remaining in glass containers.
Mix all your veggies in a large bowl.
Pour your homemade dressing on top.
