Nutrition Hacks To Make Your Salad Delicious And Filling

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, we’re sharing our best nutrition hacks on how to make salads for weight loss that are delicious and filling.

We also share what our favorite salad is.

This was a question from #AskLiveLeanTV Ep. 014.

Here’s today’s viewer question:

@karlagaytan42 on Twitter asks: What is your favorite salad? Mine is just kale with lemon and black pepper. You should try it.

That is such a good question for Jessica, because she loves salad.

To be honest, I also love salad when it’s made correctly.

Trust me, when you follow these best hacks on how to make salads for weight loss, you’ll actually want to eat more salad in your diet.

What Is Our Favorite Salad?

It’s hard to pick our favorite salad, because we love all types.

If we had to pick our favorite salad, we would pick arugula as our favorite lettuce.

We usually make different salad recipes every single day, so we rarely have the same salad twice.

In fact, we share a lot of our Big Ass Salad recipes in our Team Live Lean weekly meal plans.

Inside these salad recipes, we always vary the ingredients that’s in them by using different vegetables, protein sources, and homemade salad dressings.

Another one of our favorite salad recipes is our Abtastic Grain Free Tabouli Salad that we shared with our Team Live Lean members.

We freaking loved that one.

Salad Hacks On How To Make Salads For Weight Loss

Here’s a basic breakdown of our big ass salad recipes, including our best nutrition hacks on how to make salads for weight loss:

  1. Get a big bowl.
  2. Take a big handful of whatever type of lettuce you love, for example spinach or arugula.
  3. Before throwing the lettuce in the bowl, chop it thinly so you can easily fit a forkful of salad in your mouth, without it going all over your face. Side note: I hate it when food touches my face.
  4. Throw the chopped lettuce into the big bowl.
  5. Add in some protein, for example a sliced chicken breast. Use this recipe to marinate and bake a delicious chicken breast.
  6. Add in other crunchy vegetables, such as sliced carrots and celery.
  7. Throw a small handful of your favorite nuts in bowl.
  8. Add some herbs, spices, and seasonings, such as salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  9. Top with a small serving of your favorite homemade salad dressing.

That’s how to make salads for weight loss and gains.

Let’s Breakdown Your Kale With Lemon And Black Pepper Salad

You mentioned your favorite salad is kale with lemon and black pepper.

Although that can be a good start to making a delicious salad, it is lacking some key ingredients to fill you up, so you can make gains towards your weight loss goals.

Since this salad only contains kale, lemon, and black pepper, it’s essentially a zero calorie meal, as it only contains what we call free foods.

Free Foods! Zero Calorie Foods List

To make your weight loss journey sustainable, the goal is to eat foods containing healthy calories, that fill you up, and maintain your metabolism boosting lean muscle tissue.

When it comes to sustainable weight loss, the goal is not to eat as little calories as possible.

Based on this, we would add a lot of ingredients to your salad.

The most obvious ingredients that your salad is missing is a source of protein and healthy fat.

You could make an even more delicious salad, that will fill you up, by simply adding olive oil, meat, and following the 9 salad hacks listed above.
