Lean Meats And Leafy Vegetables Can Improve Health

By Tom Herrin

Improving diet is a common theme now.  It can be heard or seen just about everywhere.  There are all kinds of plans and programs that claim to provide benefits that can change lives.  The times when people ate meat, potatoes, and gravy every day are about gone.  Better research and education has led to much better diets that can improve performance and overall health.  Salads have taken on a whole new look that has greater appeal and more health benefits.  No longer are they considered the part of the meal that has to be simply tolerated.  They are now a major part of many healthy diets.  

What Is Really New About Salads?

While salads themselves may not be anything new, the contents are new to many people.  They are not just lettuce and tomatoes anymore.  Many salads today contain a large variety of leafy vegetables such as different kinds of lettuce, spinach, and kale, as well as a few others.  Lean meats, eggs, cheeses and a few other things can now add more protein than many salads previously contained.  In order to add flavor and creativity, many salads contain things such as nuts, seeds, broccoli, cauliflower, and a few others that can enhance the sensation. 

The Real Benefits

Most of the leafy vegetables are high in fiber.  This helps to lower blood pressure and cholesterol and help with digestion.  The fibers can help people to feel full and can be part of a good weight loss program.  They also contain many vitamins that help fight cancer and many eye problems.  When good salad dressings are used or vegetables such as avocadoes are added, the good fats and/or oils can help with absorption of vitamins and other nutrients.   

High Energy And Strong Bodies

The lean meats can go a long way toward building muscles without adding unwanted fats.  The feeling of greater satisfaction with the fibers can help avoid feeling hungry or bogged down after eating many of those heavier meals.  If you are looking for a meal with some exciting flavors that can help you have the energy to take on a heavy duty activity, try adding a good salad to your menu.  You can create it any way you choose and make it a part of your daily healthy diet.
