Rounding up the best of the summer salads before the season ends! Getting in a salad every day can be so beneficial to your overall health. Change up your salad routine by trying out some of these amazing healthy recipes.
So honestly, I love salads. LOVE them. And when people say they hate salads, I don’t get it. It’s gotta be a mindset thing, you know? Like you’ve consciously made the decision to not like them… I get it, I’ve been there. Basically I was there for most of my life until I actually started giving real food a shot.
There are so many flavor combinations you can create with a salad, you are bound to find something you like! Not to mention #allthetoppings. I love adding different textures and layers of toppings to create the perfect salad. Things like fresh berries, seeds, nuts, crumbled cheese, beans, chickpeas, tempeh, chicken, pork, fish, etc. all have a place on top of a pile of fresh greens! You just have to find a combination that’s right for you.
So because I lurrrrve salads so much and want you all to too, I thought I’d round up the best of the summer salads before the season changes! Summer ain’t over yet, my friends. So let’s see how many of these salads you can try in the next few weeks 😀

Wasn’t that fun?
Okay, but really. See how many ways there are to enjoy salads? Getting in your greens on the daily WILL benefit your health. Load up your salad with fruits and veggies, and you get antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and some fiber. Throw on some nuts or seeds, or use an oil-based dressing such as extra virgin olive oil and balsamic, and you get heart healthy fats too. So much good comes from salads… as long as we’re filling up on the greens and staying away from unhealthy dressings 🙂
