Series of food that can make you slim - salad

My daughter Rylie really love vegetable salad. I remember when my wife is getting ready to move in the States with me, she is worried that she won't be able to eat salad in front of my family because she wasn't use to it. But I was surprise because she actually love eating vegetable salad now. Okay guys, this is the last part of the food series that can make you slim. I do hope that you get as much as information to these posts.

When most people think of dieting, they think of salad. But if that means some sad greens topped with unripe tomatoes, it's no wonder diets don't work. "Salads are a great opportunity to add a lot of filling foods into your diet at one time: fresh vegetables, lean protein, beans and healthy fats," says Dr. Rolls. And research backs it up. A study from Penn State University found that women who ate a salad before a pasta lunch ate fewer calories for the whole meal than those just digging into the pasta.

TIP: Start your salad with mesclun, arugula or spinach. Not only are these greens tastier than iceberg, they also contain more iron, calcium, vitamin C and folate.
