Healthy Salads

By adding salads to our daily nutrition we can most certainly say we enjoy one of the healthiest lifestyles. Fresh fruit and vegetables have the highest value for our body and health.

Apart from being very tasty, salads are the main source of vitamins, minerals and other beneficial nutrients. We must strengthen our enzyme resources to provide quality digestion so the body can absorb quality nutrients from food we eat.

Eating fresh food as salad is very important. Having healthy salad with your main dish, especially meat, facilitates food digestion. It is very important to start almost every day with a  healthy salad.

It is strongly recommended to use the root, fruit and leafs from different vegetables in the salad recipe. Also we must not forget that some  salads are healing. To improve the taste and the quality of your salad, add some fresh spices, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice.

When you prepare your favorite salad, always remember:

-- Vegetables and fruits should be fresh and thermally rough.
-- You should always use season veggetables and fruit.
-- It is recommended for foods to be organically grown and not chemically treated.
-- The salad should be consumed right after you prepare it, because later ingredients will lose on their quality.
-- If you add leguminous veggetable, like beans, the salad can be served as a main dish.
