The Secret Benefits of Eating Gourmet Salad

What’s not to love about gourmet salads? Sure, they’re not your favourite slice of wood-fired pizza but eating gourmet salads is a great way to significantly add nutrients and vitamins in your body.
Green leafy vegetables are packed with nutrients and vitamins. They’re excellent in boosting your mood and improving your digestion.
So, if you’re trying to lose weight, improve your diet, or simply embrace a healthier lifestyle, salads are the perfect gateway food you’ve got to try. However, you’ve got to be extra careful because these nutritious bowls of greens can either be your best friend or worst enemy.
With all the nutrients that come with salad, you’d seemingly forget that these appetising greens can quickly turn menacing when they’re drizzled with creamy dressings and topped with high-calorie mix-ins such as bacon and croutons.
Don’t make that mistake and be smart with your choice. You can have a forkful of salad that’s not only scrumptious but also nutritious.
Start your everyday meals with a bowl of salad and enjoy all the great benefits that come with it such as:

1. Afraid of ageing? A bowl of salad a day keeps the fine lines away.

Ageing is a natural phase that happens to everyone, but some just gracefully age than others. Are you wondering what’s their secret? Salads.
Salad is an excellent way to add colour and texture to your everyday meals but more importantly, they are packed with antioxidants that help to oxygenate and hydrate your skin. Leafy green vegetables like spinach and lettuce are high in Vitamin C content which enhances collagen production to keep the skin tight and smooth.
But there’s more, they’re also rich in Vitamin A and K. These vitamins help promote strong shiny hair and reduce inflammation in cells.
The next time you visit Cucina Dolce, don’t skip your gourmet salads and order a plate of Spinaci Salata instead.

2. Salad can stimulate your appetite.

They say it’s best if your diet looks like the rainbow. That is why many nutritionists and dieticians will advise you to “eat the rainbow.” But how? A plate of salad will do the trick. The vibrantly bright colours of veggies tricks and incites your brain to enjoy your next meal even more.
This can be very beneficial for pregnant women who are trying on a new diet or for those who lost their appetite because of certain health problems. If you have friends suffering from poor appetite, why don’t you bring them a Caesar salad takeaway from Cucina Dolce?

3. Salads may help you lose (or gain) weight.

We hate to state the obvious, but this well-rounded dish is a popular diet food for weight loss. They’re rich in fibre and water. They also require thorough chewing which is a factor to reduce hunger and boost fullness.
The primary ingredients in your salad, such as vegetables and fruits contain low calories. This means that salads are a perfect replacement for your morning pancakes.
Are you wondering why we did say you’d also gain weight? Aside from inciting your appetite, too much salad dressing can actually bring more calories into your diet so be keen with your dressing.

4. Salads can enhance your digestion.

Have you been thinking about what doctors mean when they say, “feed the good bacteria?” Well, it simply means to keep to your gut microbes healthy. But how? You’ve got to feed them. One way of maintaining the rich ecosystem of good bacteria in your gut is by feeding them.
Eating your greens every day helps keep the good bacteria in your gut. They’re responsible for your digestion and immunity.

5. Salads are an excellent source of good fat.

Who says your body doesn’t need fat? Contrary to popular belief, your body requires the right amount of fat. With this mouthwatering entrée, your body can absorb vitamins and even promote good heart and brain health.
