If you made the decision to implement a healthy lifestyle, where you will change junk food for healthy food but do not know how to prepare it; we present you the best and worst ingredients to make a salad, which will help you start on the right foot.

According to a study by Louisiana State University, people who eat a salad a day increase the incidence and concentration of various micronutrients in the blood, such as folic acid, vitamin C, lycopene, beta-carotene and vitamin E.
So you can have a delicious and nutrients full food, we’ll tell you the best and worst ingredients to prepare your salads.
The best.
1. Kale.

Rachel Berman, nutritionist member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic says that this green leaf has significantly more vitamin A and calcium than others, in addition, that in 100 grams of kale there are only 50 calories, which makes it excellent if you want to lose weight.
2. Avocado.

A Perdue University research indicates that nutrients from leaves and vegetables are better absorbed when eaten with some healthy fat. The avocado contains 30 grams of unsaturated fat, provides lycopene, beta-carotene, and antioxidants.
3. Nuts.

Maria Cecilia Ponce, a nutritionist, indicates that these are a rich source of vitamin E, which makes them effective against free radicals, and their riches in omega 3 and 6 helps preserve neuronal health.

The worst
1. Creamy dressings.

Jillian Michaels, a personal trainer and nutrition consultant author of “Master Your Metabolism”, says that these are the worst you can choose because besides containing many fat calories add very little nutritional value.
2. Fried chicken.

A good salad should contain protein, such as from chicken, but if this is fried, it adds unnecessary high amounts of sodium. In any case, Michaels recommendation is to add shrimp or tuna.
3. Croutons.

These pieces of bread are a simple way to ruin a healthy salad as you add refined carbohydrates. To give you an example, when adding only six pieces you are adding 30 calories to your meal, says Michaels.
The recommendation for this food to be nutritious enough is to be composed of protein, carbohydrates, healthy fat and fiber; so start by omitting the worst ingredients to make a salad and add the best. Gradually you will become an expert.
