1. Salads won’t fill me upWhen the average individual thinks of a salad, they picture the small dinner plate covered with undesirous green leaves that look like they grew out of the cracks in the sidewalk. And the only thing worse than consuming the salad is the thought that you’ll still be hungry afterward. This is not the case. Although many salads consist of leafy greens, there are just as many that are packed with meat, poultry, legumes and tons of colorful vegetables, all of which are healthy, filling and wonderfully tasteful. In many cases you don’t eat as much because the fibrous ingredients take up more space in your stomach, not to mention the fact that such a healthy meal will leave you energized rather than lethargic.

They key to a great salad recipe is to get a dressing with a robust flavor made with organic ingredients of which you can use a little or a lot, and your conscience can rest easy.
