Warmer times calls for salad – these are some delicious and healthy options. But don’t fall into the old trap and believe that iceberg lettuce, cucumber and chicken is the way to do it if you want to eat healthy. Add leafy greens, don’t be afraid of mixing oven-baked veggies with veggies such as tomatoes and celery. Add in a protein source, but think outside the box, salmon, chicken are great, but you could also add in hummus, egg, peas, tempeh, quinoa or lentils for a protein boost. Or sprinkle some chia seeds or other seeds of you choice to make it more proteinrich and hence more filling.
