To help get your vegetables in make some summer salad pasta with cooked whole wheat rotini pasta,cooked lima beans, red onions, tomatoes, carrots, sweet corn kernels, ce4lery, basil and your favorite salad dressing. I like lite Italian or Balsamic. You will enjoy this colorful healthy salad.
Take the boredom out of salads. Keep a variety of different salad fixin's to vary up your plate. I keep craisins, low fat feta cheese, low sodium - low fat grated cheeses, low sodium turkey breast, as well as broccoli, cucumbers, carrots, celery, frozen baby peas and healthy salad dressings.
Use baked Tortilla chips for taco salad, with low fat sour cram, and cooked ground turkey meat, add apple slices, orange slices, tuna, shrimp to further enhance the salad variety.
