Eat a Mediterranean Salad to Fight Obesity

Eating a Mediterranean salad for lunch or dinner is a fantastic way to eat healthy and fight obesity.  It is packed full of nutrients including plenty of fiber to fill you up.  A Mediterranean salad can also raise your spirits!  In my mind, two important aspects that make it better are:

1.  Using a portable glass salad bowl with a tight fitting lid.  I do not enjoy eating out of a plastic bowl.

2. Use many different ingredients and change them often.

Today’s salad contained

Romaine lettuce (locally grown)

Mixed greens (spinach and lettuces)

White beans (canned)

Tomato
