National Salad Month is a great time to focus on eating more greens! Vegetables are so healthy and good for the body, and really should be incorporated in the diet all year long. National Salad Month is also an excellent time to experiment with salad ingredients. Salads can include fruit and small amounts of meats for extra protein.
Some tips for celebrating salad month are as followed:
Try to give yourself a challenge and eat a salad for one of your meals everyday this month. Remember that salads do not only mean a typical green “garden salad”. Even if you may not typically love salads, there are so many variations, you will be sure to find something that suits you.
Instead of focusing on a simple salad with only lettuce, try making salads your entire meal. Boosting the nutrition in the salad through color and texture can make a salad tasty and more enticing to eat.
If you are already a vegetarian, some cheese may be the perfect way for you to get the extra protein you need for energy. The Froma Cheese Slicer makes it easy for you to keep things neat and clean in the kitchen, while allowing your salads to look and taste delicious.
When you have friends or family over, try serving your salads with the Inset Salad Server. This salad server pair will make picking up the salad an easy task for everyone. They are also designed to take minimal storage space and someone will be sure to comment on the unique style.
Try a simple dressing such as olive oil and balsamic vinegar. This handy Glass Oil and Vinegar Cruet makes it easy to store. If you are looking for something slightly more upscale for a formal dinner, the Oil and Vinegar Ramo Duo (pictured above) will do the trick. It will also match the pepper and salt shakers for a put together dining experience.
If you are an expert in the kitchen, you may even consider spicing your dressings up a bit more. The Dressing Shaker makes this an easy task to do.
Plant an Edible Garden
If you have a green thumb, planting some edible plants is a great way to celebrate Salad Month this May. Not only will it save money in the long run, a home garden is an excellent way to ensure you are eating healthy all the time.
