A salad a day. This concept might seem strange or maybe too healthy and it certainly doesn’t sound like fun. But don't knock this recipe, until you try it! As a matter of fact, eating a salad every day will help you reach your “five a day” also known as the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables per day (Byrne 2020). Eating salads will also help with weight loss and digestion as they are loaded with fiber (Byrne 2020).
Kam isn't much of a cook but she does make a mean “big ass salad”. She enjoys eating this salad as part of her routine fast breaker for her first meal of the day. The key to this recipe is in the toppings. It’ll be so tasty that you'll forget you're eating lettuce. Consuming lettuce, or other leafy vegetables, are proven to aid in heart health and promote brain function (Byrne 2020).
Kam says the key to creating a big ass salad that you'll want to eat every day is in picking flavors and foods you love while combining them together. The saltiness of the salami and nuts pairs greatly with the sweetness of strawberries as well as the honey mustard dressing.
If you're not into salami, pick your favorite protein first then add your choice of vegetables, fruit, and nuts. Adding fruits and vegetables to your salad is a great way to ensure that you are consuming nutrients and vitamins. (Byrne 2020).
Another added benefit of fruits is that it will help manage your blood sugar levels as they contain natural sugars (Byrne 2020). Topping your salad with avocado or nuts is another great way to consume healthy fats (Byrne 2020). Piling on all of this good stuff will help keep you satisfied and full until your next meal.
We also recommend pairing this flavorful salad with a KPOW Nutrition signature shake. Try Kam’s Summer Salad and we trust that you will become a fan of it as well!
