A salad can be a complete meal

A salad need not be relegated to the side of the plate.

The trick to a yummy salad which you will eat Is

  • The quality of the produce
  • The mix which should involve a good combo of textures and colours
  • The dressing
  • The cuts of the vegetables
  • Volume to your salad by adding some steamed potatoes, beans, corn, peas or sprouts so you dont feel hungry later.

If you are still a beginner in eating salads, grate the vegetables fine, mix with the dressing and eat. As time passes, you can opt for bigger cuts

Quixk tip : A spiralizer or a julienne peeler can be used make veg noodles. You can use vegetables like zucchini, beetroot etc. Make a mix of avocado+basil or soaked nuts+coriander etc and mix with the spiralized vegetables. This is a fun way to make the entire family eat more vegetables.

Different ways to eat vegetables

Among vegetables give preference to watery vegetables like gourds pumpkins, squash, bottle/snake/rigge gourds, chow chow instead of starchy ones like potatoes if you are looking for weight loss and good amount of detox

  • Baked vegetables
  • Some tender vegetable peels can also be used in chutneys
  • Snack break – Have veg soup or salad or steamed veg
