What would you say if I told you that you could make 4 meals using 1 salad as the base? Would you believe me? Now, what if I told you that all these meals are also Keto-Friendly? Let’s take a look at how beneficial salads are to our health.
Benefits of Salads
Salads are a great addition to your meal plan when your goal is to lose weight or maintain your health. Salad greens contain Vitamins A and C, beta-carotene, folate, calcium, fiber, and phytonutrients. Leafy vegetables are also a good choice for a healthful diet since they do not contain cholesterol and are naturally low in calories and sodium.

It may sound like a far-fetched idea, but it is definitely possible. The 4 meals I am about to share with you are all simple to make and can be completed in no more than 20 minutes.
