Another night, another salad-based dinner! Why should salad be the center of your meal? Because leafy greens contain the highest nutrient density of all foods. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.
My simple formula for a salad-centered meal:
1. Start by covering your plate with at least 3 cups of leafy greens (my favorites are kale, arugula, romaine, and spinach).
2. Next, add some steamed (broccoli, cauliflower) or sautéed/cooked veggies (mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, yams), a plant-based protein (such as tofu, tempeh, or beans).
