is touted for building strong bones in children and

Easy salads – get more nutrients in your busy day

5 min salads for a busy work week.

So.. as promised, I will continue to post 1 salad a week.  This week, you get TWO!  wow! Lucky you

You may ask – “What did I do to deserve this?”

The answer is: Many of you are so busy that even meal prep for a busy week gets ignored. Many of my clients know they need to keep good options at home and at work  to keep them on track. But when it comes down to setting themselves up for a busy week, they simply don’t get it done, because there’s so much else to do.

Well, these two salads are simple, cheap and Very quick. This way you will be sure to get your vegetables in at lunch or dinner.

Remember, vegetables are the most nutrient dense food you can consume. And the more natural color it has, the more nutrients it has.

Check out what these amazing salads have in store for you! Make them eat them and go use their powers!  Have a great week – Get stuff done.. you Super Human, you
