Eating healthy is a daily battle that most of us loose at the end of the day. Our days turn out to be so hectic, that sometimes we don’t worry about what we put in our mouths, and salads seem to be the perfect choice for a healthy and fast meal… but this is not always true.

Yes, it good to eat fruits and vegetables, but we also need to keep in mind our need for carbs, protein, fiber, and more. The use of seeds, nuts, and beans in salads is extremely helpful in contributing with protein, fiber, minerals and great flavors that we all need. Have fun mixing up colors when preparing your salads, but be smart when adding dressings, oils, cheeses and croutons because most of these are unnecessary and simply add more fat.
