Culinary Delights: Healthy Fruit Topped Salad
We all made that New Year's resolution to eat better right? Well to help us all stay on track, I will periodically provide a healthy choice option to eat for inspiration. I personally feel like I can create a better tasting salad than any restaurant. I'm generous with my toppings and when you finish eating one of my creations, you're assured that you just had a meal and are not hungry afterwards.
This was a salad I made recently for dinner.
Organic Mixed Greens
Fresh Broccoli Florets
Craisins Dehydrated Cranberries
2 Hard boiled eggs (sliced)
2 tbls of Walnut Rasberry Vinegrette (measured) - remember it's dressing not gravy!
Strawberries - rich in antioxidents, improved blood sugar regulation, anti-inflammatory
Raisins - rich in antioxidents, has boron which is good for bone health
Broccoli - Rich in vitamins A &K,detoxifying
Cranberries - rich in antioxidents, high in vitamin C
This salad is very flavorful and delicious. With the naturally sweet fruit toppings, it eliminates the need for me to want dessert afterwards. Yummy!
