Kick Off The Week With The Ultimate Superfood Salad

This is called the super salad due to the amount of everyday superfoods that are in it. All these ingredients in one dish mean a big bowl contains vitamins A, B group, C, E, and K; carotenoids; manganese; glucosinolates; flavonoids; copper; selenium; iron; and fiber. And best of all, it tastes great.

These foods have the power to help lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar levels, support the immune system and eye health, and are anti-inflammatories.
