January 7, 2012 By Leanne Vogel July 7, 2015This weeks’ salad challenge posts: Introduction, Sweet + Creamy Broccoli Salad, Green Goddessphere at Sea, Spinach Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette, Cucumber Dill Kale Salad 5 days, 5 lip-licking, bowl loving, veggie packed salads. How did you do with the challenge? I don’t think I’ve ever ate this many veggies in my life, even when I was vegan. On Thursday; without even realizing it, I had 3 salads. Lunch, dinner, and evening snack. I’m a veggie eatin’ machine! I remember finding it challenging to get a healthy amount of veggies stuffed in my day while staying excited about what I was eating. Thanks to this challenge; and all of you, I think I’ve finally landed on an approach that works. 1 salad a day for life, baby! It’s amazing how quickly we can adapt to healthy changes if we just take it one step at a time. One more salad to go for this edition of the salad challenge and I had to squeeze in a recipe that included asparagus. The challenge just couldn’t be complete without a bit of asparagus love. Did you know that asparagus contains inulin – a prebiotic that doesn’t get broken down by the first segments of our digestive tract? When you eat the spears of green fantasticness, they pass through your digestion, completely undigested until they get to your large intestine, and from there, become a food source for your healthy bacteria. This healthy bacteria helps strengthen our digestion, immune system, aids in nutrient absorption, and can lower our risk of colon cancer, making this salad pretty much… awesome.
