Add Salad To Your Diet Every Day

(NAPSI)-Eating five servings of fruits and vegetables every day can be a "berry" good idea, especially when you find a way to combine fruits such as berries and flavorful vegetables into one delicious and nutritious salad.

Enjoying a salad a day can help increase your energy level, fill you up and provide essential vitamins and minerals found in a variety of produce. Including a variety of foods helps to keep you on track to eating better and avoids the boredom that comes with some diets. And, when tossing together, the ingredients are limited only by your imagination. Think of flavors you like and try them together; the results could be surprisingly tasty.

For recipes that showcase the many imaginative ways to toss a salad, visit 30salads30days.com. The site offers a salad for every day of the month.
