When in doubt, eat a green salad. And throw some other vegetables and fruits in there, like tomatoes and red peppers. Teach yourself how to make a good salad dressing. Or if you’re lazy, there are salad dressings out there that are USDA Organic with clean ingredients. My favorite company is Bragg. Their products taste good and are very wholesome. But nothing beats the salad dressing made by you at home.
You don’t just pour salad dressing on the salad and then shove it down your throat. If you make a good salad dressing, it’s really a marinade designed to pre-digest your leaves. So you should rub the salad dressing into the leaves and let it sit for 15 minutes before you eat it.
The middle of the day is a great time for a salad. I recommend eating your largest, most filling meal in the middle of the day. This is because your body is still awake and you still have time to utilize extra energy.
Humans can actually live on salad alone, as long as there is enough diversity of produce from day to day and as long as the salads have enough calories. If grains and animal protein are added, they should be eaten with large leafy green salads.
