What better choice for a quick and easy meal that’s healthy but also filling? I’m not a big fan of greens, leaves or sprouts in general but top them with meat, cheese, nuts and some delicious dressings and I’ll be munching that down in no time.
I will show you four of my favourite super salad combinations. These salads are packed with nutrients, proteins and necessary fats, but low in carbs, meaning they will provide a steady supply of energy for a couple of hours with no “crash”. A big plus is you can have a huge bowl and not feel guilty about it.
If you are training at the gym or you need more carbs to suit your active lifestyle, a baked potato or some oven baked sweet potato fries would make great “guilt free” and healthy choices.
