All that’s green is not necessarily healthy and that holds especially true for the good old salads. The fancy toppings and taste enhancers are loaded with calories that you want to avoid in the first place. However, all you need is a little tweaking to turn that 700 calorie disaster into a health wonder.
Kale for example, is one of the best ingredient to add to a salad due to its high fiber and calcium content. Just spruce it up with some light dressing and let it sit for a while to get the leaves to soften. You can also mix fresh herbs like cilantro, parsley etc which are a great source of antioxidants and add instant flavour.
