Just for the health of it...

Slice calories with salad



Do you tend to stuff yourself at meals?


Control that calorie intake by starting with a large salad (but hold the creamy dressing).  


In a study of 42 women at Penn State University, those who ate a big, low-cal salad consumed 12% less pasta afterward - even though they 

were offered as much as they wanted.


The secret, say researchers, is the sheer volume of a salad, which makes you feel too full to pig out.

Health bonus: A study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that people who ate one salad a day with dressing had higher levels of vitamins C and E, folic acid, lycopene, and carotenoids - all disease fighters - than those who didn't add salad to their daily menu

Salad therefore has all around health benefits! Make them fun and colourful!
