Salads have an easy formula to follow to delicious and balanced greatness!
First, pick your greens and you can pick anything you want.
Spinach, iceberg lettuce, romaine, shredded cabbage… you can even use blanched green beans.
You should choose some colorful toppings.
The more colors you add to your salad, the more interesting it is, and the more nutrient packed it can be.
Toss in radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, almonds, sunflower seeds, or garbanzo beans just for a few suggestions.
Cheeses can throw off blood sugar if you eat too many of them, so limit them to just enough to add a touch of flavor.
And now you just need to pick a dressing.
You should limit the amount of dressing you use because most will affect your blood sugar.
However, vinaigrettes offer some help in lowering blood glucose.
