Two salads a day added to your meal is a smart thing to do. I “doctor” any meal with salads, even if the meal is not that healthy. For example a pizza and a burger meal would be much better with a salad. This is one of my favorite salads because I get to add a variety of colorful vegetables and super foods. I specially make sure that my organic mix baby greens have a variety, not just the lettuce but also baby dark greens such as kale, collard and spinach. The baby greens plus sprouts such as sunflower, peas and broccoli sprouts are loaded with nutrients. The fruits add other vitamins and phytonutrients important year round especially during the winter months. Sprouts can be easily grown at home. I’ve grown them in cold and warm weather. To my salad dressing I always add a little bit of garlic, after all garlic is known to ward off many maladies (check out my stories on garlic). Here is my delicious super food salad loaded with color, texture and taste. Two daily salads are part of my healthy dish.

Enjoy!

  1. Outside of the kiwi & strawberries, looks like the salad I have almost every day. It is amazing how we don’t realize how well
    our bodies run if we feed ourselves these essentials! Thanks for the idea of putting some fruit in the salad. Tried your fruit
    salad- added a couple of other fruits & made a great desert this way. Thank you as I had never thought of throwing a bunch of fruits together to make a desert. Guess I was either being too lazy or just never thought of doing this. I had just always eaten a full fruit, but this was much better as we can get a much bigger variety of vitamins this way. :)
