Healthy and Delicious Salad Toppings

By Genevieve Cunningham

Salads are one of the best foods to help you transition into a healthy diet. They're quick and easy, low-calorie, and popular amongst the healthy eating crowd. But unfortunately, salads can also get really boring really fast. If you don't change it up enough, you’re likely to get your fill of this meal long before you’ve reached your goals. So what are we supposed to do? If you need your salads to be a bit more tasty but want to keep them healthy, take a look at these delicious toppings to consider.

Salad Dressing

Salad dressing can be healthy or unhealthy depending on your personal choice. If you want to add a salad dressing, look for one that is low calorie, low fat, and easy on the sodium. You can even opt for things such as lemon juice or apple cider vinegar to spice up your salad. If you choose a dressing that is healthy, you can add mounds of flavor to your dish without any negative consequences.

Nuts

Nuts are an excellent option for anyone who wants to give an extra crunch to their salad. Nuts are packed full of essential vitamins, healthy fats, and tons of protein. They are a bit high in calories, so make sure you measure your portions. Sprinkle some almond slivers, a few walnuts, or perhaps some cashews on top, and you have a delicious salad that is healthy and still satisfies the taste buds.

Shredded Veggies

Even though vegetables sound boring, they definitely don't have to be. Use a grater to shred some carrots, bell pepper, cauliflower, broccoli, or any other veggie of your choosing. Then sprinkle on top of your salad. This makes the addition very small, so as not to overwhelm the senses, but gives just enough texture and flavor to keep it fun and tasty. This is one of the best ways to change it up without adding too many calories to the overall meal.

Eating a healthy diet can be easy and delicious. Long gone are the days of boring meals and diet foods that taste like cardboard. Healthy foods can be great! And with these tiny additions, even your salad can be appetizing. Use these options to spice it up, and maintaining a well balanced diet will be easier than ever before.
