When you see this little salad, what do you see? Yes, lettuce, onions, radishes, olives, and purple cabbage. Well, here is what the coach would tell you. Those onions, great choice since they are source of prebiotic fiber. Radishes are crazy low carb (1 net in 3.5 ounces) and that peppery taste just can’t be beat. Olives are a wonderful little fruit. They contain healthy fat and eating them might make you a free radical zapping superhero. Salad greens are also low in carbs – only 3 net in 2 cups! Purple cabbage, a cruciferous cousin of the radish, provides vitamin C and its phytonutrients can help to reduce chronic inflammation.
Yes, food is medicine. Choose wisely.
