Eating salads regularly may be one of the healthiest eating habits you can adopt.
Salads are cool, crunchy, and fun to eat. You can customize them to include the fruits and vegetables that appeal to you the most, and whichever ones you have on hand.
Salads should not just be that meal you order at a fancy restaurant or prepare once in a while.
This meal has abundant benefits that your body needs. Below are some of the health benefits of eating salads daily.
Salads reduce your risk of getting cancer
If you frequently eat green salads, you’ll likely have higher blood levels and a host of powerful antioxidants.
These include 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.
For years, researchers have noted a link between eating lots of fruits and vegetables and lower risks of many diseases, particularly cancer.
A recent study from the National Cancer Institute suggests that people whose diets are rich in fruits and vegetables may have a lower risk of developing cancers of the head and neck, even those who smoke and drink heavily.

Salads are great for weight loss
If losing weight is your goal, you may want to start your meals with a green salad.
Studies have shown that eating a low-calorie like a green salad of 150 calories or less, enhances satiety (feelings of fullness) and reduces the total number of calories eaten during a meal.
Just ensure your salad is bigger in volume, not in calories. This means more veggies and less dressing and other fatty add-ons.
