Salads are such a great healthy choice of food. There are so many nutritious ingredients in this one. Let's just look at spinach. It is low in calories and high in minerals and vitamins. You can eat all the spinach you want and not worry about weight gain from it. Spinach is readily available pretty much year round as when it is not coming from outdoor gardens it is being cultivated in large greenhouses. It is inexpensive for the grower and the consumer. It grows very quickly, so the grower does not spend a lot of time just waiting for this crop to mature. This is one of the reasons spinach is always affordable. You can eat spinach raw, cooked or even in a spinach smoothie. Spinach is considered a heart-healthy food. It is loaded with antioxidants and iron. We know it made Popeye strong to the finish, cause he ate his spinach!
Tomatoes are like candy to my pallet. While others may snack on other things, I just love a big basket of small tomatoes sitting on my counter to devour when I am in the mood for a little nibble! Fortunately, tomatoes are also just such a healthy food to eat. With tomatoes eating them cooked or raw offer important health benefits. It has been proven that eating tomatoes in one way or another two times a week reduces the chance of certain cancers. They are also good for your eyes and heart disease. Foods rich in cooked tomatoes also boost our bodies ability to work against the sun's UV damaging rays. So, no matter how you consume tomatoes, keep doing it!Now let us head over to the Shugary Sweets website at the link just below and get the full instructions and ingredients for this tasty meal.
