Healthy Toppings For Your Salad

Seeds & Nuts

When it comes to topping green salads, just add seeds or nuts for more nutrition. I try to add at least one of these three to every one of my salads. You can also eat them plan for a snack, but don’t over do it- a handful is enough.
– Hemp Seeds
All natural organic hemp seeds out of the shell, also known as hemp hearts. These are one of the world’s most nutritious seeds. Shelled hemp seeds are 33% protein and packed with Omega 3. Eat 3 tablespoons a day of this delicious treat to gain all of its health benefits.
– Pumpkin Seeds
High in protein, phosphorous and iron, pepitas are great in salads or just for snacking.
– Almonds
Almonds are considered to have a higher nutritional density than other nuts–that is, they offer the greatest amount of nutrients per calorie. With every organic raw almond serving, you’re getting a hearty dose of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that includes:Dietary fiber, Vitamin E, Magnesium, Calcium, Monounsaturated fat, good for cholesterol, Easy-to-digest protein. With all these essential assets, almonds are great for your heart, immune system, bones, teeth, digestive system and much more. A simple handful a day can be a major part of a whole-health approach.
