“Eat a salad every day!” is good advice. But it’s not just good advice, it can also be life-changing advice. The truth is that eating salads on a daily basis can do wonders for your health and fitness goals. Check it out…
Eating salads every day can help improve your metabolism and make you feel better. There are many different ways to eat salad, including eating salad raw or cooked and with meat or without meat. You can also add crunchy additions for more flavor and texture!
Our 200+ ingredients at Toss include cooked quinoa, animal proteins, cheese and nuts.
Eating salads lowers blood sugar levels in the body because it contains low-glycemic carbohydrates that are good for people with diabetes.
Eating salads has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels in the body (but not triglycerides), which is good because elevated cholesterol levels have been linked to heart disease risk factors.
“You burn off more than half the calories in a salad just by chewing and digesting it.”
Salad is a good source of fiber, which requires more energy to digest than fat or protein does. This means that your body burns more calories just breaking down the salad’s components (fiber, water, and other nutrients) into smaller molecules before they can be absorbed into your bloodstream.
Fiber helps you feel full on fewer calories, making it easier to maintain a healthy weight without feeling deprived or hungry all the time.
Salads and wraps at Toss are loaded with fibrous veggies. When you build your own, you’re sure to like all the veggies on there!
One trick I’ve found useful is adding beans as well as nuts and seeds when making salads because both have high protein content that makes me feel fuller longer than other foods do—and they’re also very nutritious!
The point is to eat them on a regular basis! It can be hard to get yourself in the mood for something new or different every day, but once you get started it becomes much easier. If you need some help getting getting in the habit, why not try the signature salads at Toss. They have been carefully crafted for maximum flavor, crunch, and satisfaction!
