Salads are one of the most popular weight loss foods. Aside from their natural good taste, vibrant colours and crunchy textures, eating a bowl of fresh salad each day can have significant health benefits. However, many of us assume that salads are bland and boring. Which is why we often avoid including it in our diet. But the truth is that there is so much that can be done with salads. You can add herbs, nuts, seeds or toss in a delicious dressing of your choice. Not only this, you can also increase the protein content of your salad by including ingredients that are high in protein. Beans are an excellent source of protein and dietary fibre and can be a great addition to your diet.
