Vegetables can be very boring BUT NOT WHEN YOU TURN IT TO A FRESH SALAD GOODNESS!

According to Sandiegohealthyliving.com there are 10 reasons why you should pick salad!
Sharpen your eyesight: That’s right, certain salads can actually help sharpen your eyesight. Salads that have spinach, romaine, or red leaf lettuce contain loads of vitamin A carotenoids, lutein, and zeaxanthin. These nutrients help prevent high-energy light that may cause eye damage and aid in light and dark eye adaptation.

 Strengthen your muscles: Popeye had it right all along. Salad greens and spinach have nitrates that can boost the production of the proteins in the muscles, making them stronger and more efficient.

Slim down your waist: Salads are very low in calories, so eating salad in place of many other fatty foods will help you slim down the pounds.

Get to sleep easier: Lettuce contains a sleep inducing substance called ‘lectucarium’ which has been used to treat cases of insomnia.

High source of fiber: Salads are high in fiber which slows the rate that sugar is absorbed into the blood-stream, makes your intestines move faster, and it speeds up the digestive process.

Lower your food cravings: Eating a salad will help reduce cravings for many other fatty foods. Additionally eating a small salad before a meal will help prevent over-eating.

 Fast and easy: Don’t have time to cook a meal? Or not quite sure what to get on the menu? Choosing a salad is always quick and easy. Anyone can easily make a salad and any place you choose to dine will probably have a salad on their menu.

 Stay Regular: A high-fiber diet helps you have soft, regular bowel movements, reducing constipation.

Protect against diseases:  By improving digestive health, eating salads can help protect the body from diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Increased Immune system: Eating salads is a great way to increase your vegetable intake and vegetables contain antioxidants which help aid in booting the immune system.
