Super Salad Meal

A super salad meal is a great healthy diet habit for a healthy lunch or healthy dinner, and is a must if you want to eat your daily vegetable quota, keep your weight down, and increase your fiber.

You can easily practice the half plate rule by adding your protein source and carbohydrate source to your salad and voila, a perfect meal that takes very little time to prepare, especially if you buy your base and some of your extra veggies pre-chopped.
