Healthy Proteins to Add Some Power to Your Salad

Submitted by admin on Mon, 06/17/2019 - 13:54
Salads are a great way to eat more veggies, but greens alone do not make a satisfying meal. They'll just leave you feeling hungry. Say "bye-bye" to wimpy greens and "hello" to healthy proteins to power up your salad. Protein-rich foods like chicken, eggs and chickpeas can beef up even the simplest base of leafy greens. Protein helps to build muscles and sticks around long after you've eaten to help you feel full and energized. High-protein diets have been linked to lower BMIs and smaller waists.

Riff on This Grilled Eggplant Dish to Make 4 Different Easy, Healthy Dinners

But instead of hitting the "repeat" button on the same recipes, keep dinner feeling fresh by mastering a basic recipe and then riffing on it. Try starting with simple grilled eggplant with fresh tomatoes and salty cheese served over creamy polenta—or serve it over pasta for an even faster dish. Or swap out the eggplant for zucchini if that's what's popping in your garden. Or make your meal even more substantial by adding some grilled sausage.
