While it doesn’t make such claims of keeping doctors away, a bowl of salad a day is great for your health, experts say.
According to registered nutritionists and dietitians, eating vegetable salads, which are usually high in fiber, not only helps a person lose weight (by enhancing satiety especially when they eat a low-calorie food first), but also helps lower cholesterol levels and prevent constipation.
Nutrient-rich plant foods also contribute to overall health.
Several research studies also point to salad’s contribution to lowering risks of many diseases, including cancer. A recent study from the National Cancer Institute reveals those with fruit- and vegetable-rich diets may have lower risks of developing cancers of the head and neck.
Salads pack in health benefits and flavors, but some people’s issue with salad is in its preparation. “It’s easier to open a bag of chips than to slice and dice vegetables and toss them in a bowl,” some snack lovers would say. Keeping the ingredients fresh in the fridge for a couple of days is another challenge.
Food chain SaladStop! helps make eating salad part of daily habit easier by offering a subscription-based meal plan service.
