  1. I have seen people having Salad in large amount as they love it a lot. But very few of health conscious blog writers elaborate it as you have done. Having salad is good for health but the right intake and taking the right ingredients talks about the healthier life a head. A salad rich in protein gives a long lasting life and energies the immune system of the body. And I am glad to read such informative blog post. People do not value it but through this writing you have shown that every little thing can make difference if taken, the right way.
