an entire month devoted to salads! Salads are a great source of eating more
greens, protein, fruits, and vegetables. Now I have a confession, I was never that
person that loved to eat salad, or even lettuce for that matter! However, since
changing my lifestyle to be more active and healthy, I have realized that there
is tons of ways to not only eat salad, but to make it fun! You see, salad
doesn’t have to be boring or just have lettuce and veggies; you can add protein
like meat and eggs, pasta, different nuts, and even fruit!
