Easy peesy salad


Today I want to write on some tips in making a simple, healthy, tasty salad.

This salad has the following

1. Tomatoes
2. Lettuce
3. Carrots
4. A protein (Eggs or bacon bits or chicken pieces)

Chop them up however you like.
With Lettuce, I just pluck into pieces.
prior to chopping, keep lettuce in salted water, flash carrots with hot water for about 5-10mins (will help soften them, unless you like it super crunchy).
Toss in your protein.

Homemade vinaigrette : Oil+Salt+pepper+vinegar...mix...simple n tasty.
I love Honey mustard, so definitely try that.

As a Doctor, I tell my patients that they must eat well to help in getting better. Eat well even when you are well. Eat healthy always. I will try to add health points with any recipe.

Health point:
Tomatoes and lettuce have Vitamin A (good for the eyes) and Vitamin C (good for skin). Veggies are generally a good source of fiber which help with digestion(eat a good serving everyday to prevent constipation). Red fruits and vegetables contain lycopene which is thought to help reduce the risk of certain health conditions, including prostate cancer.
