Rainbow salad

Not all salads are created equal, and this is by far the most super of them all! Packed with so many different vitamins, minerals and natural goodness the list goes on for the benefits eating a rainbow diet can have on our minds and bodies.  
Take a closer look at why we love this salad so much! 
  •  The true superstar in this salad is the Black rice. Black rice contains more anthocyanin (an antioxidant found in blueberries) then any other grain as well as more protein and iron. Its also gluten free meaning this little beauty should definitely not be the black sheep of anyone's diet
  • Not all leafy greens will build a super-nutritious salad. In fact, Iceberg lettuce (the nations most widely used) ranks the lowest in nutritional value across the board (96 percent water content will do that!). Turbo-charged spinach, on the other hand, boasts nearly twice the recommended daily value of vitamin K, half the recommended value of vitamin A, and ample amounts of calcium and iron. Clearly, Popeye was on to something.
  • But don't worry about that vitamin A! The carrot portion in this salads got you covered. Vitamin A is converted in the liver from Beta-carotene which carrots are packed of! in fact that's where beta-carotene gets its name. This little beauty acts as an antioxidant to cell damage done to the body through regular metabolism. In short It help slows down the ageing of cells and helps rebuild them after exercise. It also keeps your skin glowing and has been proven to help you see in the dark. (one of the few old wives tales that was actually true) 
  • The avocados in this salad arnt just delicious, They're awesome! With more potassium than bananas Avocados are a source of pantothenic acid, dietary fiber, vitamin K, copper, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin C. Basically....eat avocados!  Not to mention all that healthy fat that lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.
  • The red cabage has so much more flavor than white cabbage. Not to mention, almost double the Vitamin C. It also contains powerful antioxidants, like all of its cruciferous counterparts.
