The salad contains asparagus and cucumber tossed in olive oil and topped with sunflower seeds, buffalo mozzarella and chicken tikka pieces. Asparagus is a low-calorie vegetable that is a rich source of fibre, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral which helps control levels of blood sugar. Cucumbers are again rich in fibre that is responsible for increasing the satiety factor of the meal, as well as water to keep you hydrated. Cucumbers are also rich sources of B vitamins that have been known to combat stress and anxiety.
Olive oil is rich in healthy fats and antioxidants and is ideal for people who need to watch their weight. Sunflower seeds are also a great addition to salads and smoothies as they provide essential vitamins and minerals to the body. Sunflower seeds are important for thyroid health and a positive mood. The chicken tikka and buffalo cheese are sources of healthy protein. Well we guess, it takes a little bit of innovation and loads of Shilpa Shetty-level of creativity to make healthy food delicious.
