For people with jobs and kids and busy lives, it can be so hard to get the required amount of vegetables in the diet. Salads are a perfect way to get your veggie intake for the day, since you can load up a salad with as many different types as you want. Better then that, salads are crazy easy to customize, so experimenting and making variations is a great and fun way to find your ideal mix.
This carrot blueberry salad is the perfect treat to have as a side dish for dinner this summer. Sell this refreshing mix to the family with classic carrots and blueberries, and sneak some nutrient packed superfoods into the mix. You can even take the leftovers with you to work the next day for a healthy salad on the go!
A Superfood Salad
It’s not just tasty, this salad is packed with superfoods, including a delicious way to incorporate sprouts into your diet, an amazing, nutrient-dense vegetable that people often do not get enough of. Sprouts are a great way to balance your body’s pH, defend against environmental toxins, and even protect your cells from cancer. Sprouts really should be the staple of any diet, and they go great in this salad.
While the sprouts of the mix fight cancer, the blueberries work to prevent diseases in the body. And of course we don’t even need to tell you that spinach is a leafy green that’s loaded with nutrients and vitamins. When making this salad, make sure to use all fresh and natural ingredients for maximum health benefits!
Here’s how to make it. Remember that you can experiment and add ingredients if you want to get creative!
