It is not a secret, that veggies should be a main component of our diet. But what does “main component” mean? Should I eat them with all my meals? Well the answer is: yes! At least try to make that happen. World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends that 400 grams should be eaten every day, which roughly makes 5 portions per day. Of course, the more the better. If your plate isn’t dominated by veggies, then starting with a 5 portion rule is a very good idea. Feel free to increase the number of portions with time. If you make it all the way to 8-9, I will be truly proud of you! Here’s my idea for delicious salad, a good place to start. You can eat it alone or use as side for other dishes. It matches really nice with meats and fishes. Delicious with eggs and veggie balls.Servings: 2
