Let's Make The Salads Healthier!
A salad dressing decorates the salads to provide us a visual treat. In fact, some of us eat salads only because of the dressing done over it.
Some secondary salad dressings have become quite popular. The mayonnaise based Thousand Island dressing in India, for example, has become a frequently used dressing in Italian restaurants. It is delicious, sweet, creamy and tangy and served with a range of international dishes served worldwide.
But Salad dressing in india is still avoided at many places because of its high calorie ingredients. Choosing a perfectly dressed salad over sandwiches and burgers may not always be a healthy option. If you also choose a salad for a healthy meal, here's a list of things you can do to make it healthier.
Use an oil based dressing: Salads have vitamins like vitamin A, D, E and K-which are fat soluble. So you have to have a medium to dissolve those fats. Using an oil based dressing would serve this medium and melt your belly fat. Also, add vinegar to the oil as it is a fat releaser.
•Mix it up with spinach: Spinach is the one of the healthiest green stuffs you would find in your kitchen. Mixing it up with spinach would provide you disease-fighting antioxidants. You can also mix it with some other green herbs such as basil or parsley. The greener the salad, the healthier the mix.
•Go cheesy: It's a common notion that cheese increases the fat content. However, cheese is a rich source of calcium and it helps in releasing fat. It would help you maintain a healthy weight by helping you burn fat and making you less hungry.
•Protein does the good: You don't have to worry about adding grilled chicken or salmon into your salad as long as you're keeping a check on its calorie content. Go for a healthy serving size of these protein-rich foods.
•Add fruits: We have been hearing about the benefits of fruits since our childhood and so you can never go wrong with fruits. You can add carrots, cucumbers, strawberries and peas to add versatile flavor as well as healthiness.
•Mix crunchy nuts: Add different types of nuts and seeds into your salads. That way you can satisfy your crunchy cravings as well as maintain health.
Say goodbye to the conventional dressings and dress your salad with these healthy elements!
