I Hate Salads But These 3 Are Now Part Of My Meal Plan

Do you think salads equate to boring healthy food? You’re wrong. If you’re looking for salad recipes that are easy but flavour bombs, look no further.

Does your family consist of people who turn up their noses and close their mouths at the mention of the word “salad”? Well, mine does! For my husband and kids, salad meant an overload of veggies and green leaves and they just didn’t want any part of that.

Fast forward to now – they’ve actually started enjoying eating a salad with their meals. I decided to rework my salads a bit and come to a halfway point where everyone is happy.

We all indulge ourselves a little at least over the weekend where food is concerned. It’s time to give our tummies a break and balance out our meals to include food that is healthy and gut healing.

Go ahead and scroll down to find out how these 3 salads are now a regular in my weekly meal plans!

Beetroot Salad

Today I am sharing a recipe with you that has helped me through detox times, as a mid-day snack and as a meal when I feel the need to eat light – Beetroot Salad. And the dressing is made with dahi or curd which is an excellent probiotic.

By the way, before you think that you shouldn’t be eating curd in winter, we have news for you. Ayurveda expert Dr Manisha Mishra actually says that Dahi is winter food. Surprised? You can see what else she says here.
