Why It’s Good For You:
These salads are brimming with phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, not to mention high amounts of fiber that your digestive health craves. Consuming a large raw or partially raw salad each day is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. The large dose of soluble and insoluble fiber, hydration from the vegetables, and a mix of nutrients is exactly what your cells are looking for to repair and renew as they regenerate. The key here is that you have a mega-healthy meal to grab on the go that also tastes delicious. Master this technique and eating your salad will no longer feel like a chore.
