One of the tastiest ways to get more veggies on your plate is by eating salads. Not the lettuce, slice of tomato, slice of cucumber and crouton salad…more like best of Pinterest salads.
To make it worth my time for all the chopping involved, I have started making more unique salads featuring beans, grains, and nuts. They happen to be so filling, they often end up taking up ½ of my plate. Not too shabby, considering that veggies are a free for all when it comes to blood sugar control. So the more vegetables I fit on my plate, the better.
To most people salads are synonymous with wilted iceberg lettuce - tasteless and boring. Which is unfortunate, because it makes it less likely that anyone would want to try this simple way of adding veggies to your plate. This week I’d like to invite you to bust the tasteless salad myth with me. All you need is a computer and your little fingers. My favorite part? You don’t even have to be a “cook” to throw together a great salad. For the most part, no cooking is involved.
