Salads are NOT boring or bland! If they are, you’re probably not making your salad right. Salads should be light, fresh, easy to digest and make very filling meals.

My salad recipes are packed full of tasty ingredients, different varieties and textures. You can make them the day before and take it with you to work or school. Plus, if you are watching your weight, you will know exactly what you’ve put in it.

The tip to make a balanced, healthy and delicious salad is simple grab a large bowl and combine:
1) One portion of Carbs (1/2 cup)
Pasta, Rice, Couscous, Bulgar wheat, Quinoa, Potatoes, Bread etc
*Leftovers are perfect for this!

2) One portion of Protein (3oz / 85g)
Any meat, chicken, ham slices, chorizo, any fish, can tuna / salmon, eggs, seafood, cheese, any beans, tofu, tempeh etc.

3) Lots of fresh Vegetables & Fruits
As many fruits and vegetables of your choice, serve in abundance.

4) A selection of Herbs or Sprinkles
Fresh herbs such as Mint, Parsley, Basil or Coriander.
Any seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, or flax seeds), Nuts (walnuts, pistachio or almond), Dried Fruits (Raisins, Apricot or Sultanas) or Olives.
**Consume seeds, nuts and dried fruits in moderation as they are high in calories.

5) Light Salad Dressing
Make your own by using a combination of Lemon / Lime / Honey / Olive Oil / Rice Vinegar / Balsamic Vinegar etc.

Chicken & Mango Rice Salad and Spiced Chickpeas Tuna Salad are just two of my favourites. Try them out, experiment with your own combination and share your pictures with me on instagram and facebook. All the best!
