Salad Health Check Analysis

Here is a healthy salad created by one of our members. The ingredients of this salad makes it a 240-calorie salad with some cool fresh extra toppings such ascorn, cucumbers, onions - 1 slice and more.

Let's do a health check on this Healthy Salad:

The contents of this salad don't lend itself to a salad with items that would be considered as cholesterol and blood sugar helpers. Consider adding items such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds, if it suits your taste. Food items from vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and seeds categories may make this salad healthier and tastier.

Salads are supposed to be healthy but what good is a salad if it does not contain food items that are antioxidant rich? This salad, unfortunately, does not contain items that may provide essential nutrients. If you are planning to consider this salad for your own diet then consider adding items such as artichokes, russet potatoes, apples, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, cranberries, raspberries, strawberries, plums, prunes, pecans, small red beans, red kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans, coffee, red wine, tea and more ...

We wonder if this is indeed a salad because even adding spinach or tomatoes would have made this salad pass the antioxidant test. Bottom line, this is not a healthy salad.

How can you have a salad that does not contain any fiber? Sadly, this salad does not contain any food items that would make it a fiber-rich salad. Had this member thrown in some black beans and sprinkled it with some thinly sliced walnuts or even artichokes then this salad would have gotten our thumbs up on the fiber front. All it would have taken this member to make this salad a fiber-rich salad is to add a reasonable portion of black beans, sprinkle it.

If you are looking to add fiber in your salad then this salad also contains items such as most vegetables, pears, mangoes, kiwi, plums, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, strawberries, apples, citrus fruits, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, dried peas, beans, lentils, whole grains, oatmeal, oat bran that may be a good source of fiber. All in all, the dietary fiber in this salad comes in at 43% of the daily recommended levels.

So, there you have it... Like this salad then go ahead and just adopt it and start adding it to your 7-day diet.
