An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and the same goes for salad. The green leafy veggies are jam packed with vitamins and nutrients that your body needs in order to perform at its best.

But let’s face it, eating a salad everyday can get a little boring. That’s why I’ve listed salad recipes you can alternate between for inspiration. But before I list them, here are 3 benefits of eating salad regularly:
-Decreased risk of cancer
-Lower risk of heart disease
-More energy

According to WebMD, “If you frequently eat green salads, you’ll likely have higher blood levels of a host of powerful antioxidants (vitamin C and E, folic acid, lycopene, and alpha- and beta-carotene), especially if your salad includes some raw vegetables. Antioxidants are substances that help protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.”

Now that you know the benefits, here are 5 salad recipes that are delicious and nutritious.
