The salad I had for lunch consisted of mixed leaves, cherry tomatoes, half an avacado, quarter of a salmon fillet, around 30g of chicken and topped with heart healthy olive oil. Now I would say that you can make them even more exciting than this by using nuts and/or fruit such as pomegranate or cranberries etc.
I always have bread with my salads to give that proper balance of macros and get some more carbs in. As long as you have lots of veggies of your choice, a source of protein e.g. salmon, chicken, tuna, ham etc, a healthy dressing and a source of carbs such as rice, cous cous or bread then you’re on to a winner!
If you are aiming for weight loss however, you are better without the extra carbs just to keep the calories down.
Simply slice up a medium apple and add a loaded teaspoon of peanut butter. As mentioned in another post I always go for “whole earth” smooth peanut butter, it tastes the best to me!
