3 Healthy & Delicious Reasons to Eat a Salad for Lunch, Los Angeles, California

When you choose to incorporate a salad in your meal, you’re not only getting a healthy serving of vegetables—you’re getting a boost for your overall health and well-being. Today, the culinary experts from Los Angeles’ favorite salad shop, Vees Cafe, will explain why you should eat one for lunch today, tomorrow, and every day!

If you haven’t eaten one already, here are a few excellent reasons to indulge in a salad today:

  • Fiber & Healthy Fats: Salads are packed with fiber that helps the body maintain a healthy digestive system and lowers cholesterol levels. They often contain avocados, nuts, and other sources of healthy fats that can lower your risk of heart disease.
  • Fruits & Veggies: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that nearly 90% of Americans don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. Since these nutrient-packed foods are so key to health, energy, and overall well-being, it makes sense to strive to be the minority who are eating well. To load up on these essential foods, incorporate at least one salad in your day-to-day diet. A large salad can easily pack in about three servings of fruits and veggies.  
  • salad shopFeel Full & Stay Fit: If you don’t feel like dedicating your whole meal to salad, eat a salad before your meal instead. A salad can make you feel satisfied and curb unhealthy eating habits throughout the day.

There’s a common misconception that salads have to be bland and uninspiring, but this just isn’t the case. At Los Angeles’ favorite salad shop, the assortment of leafy green options is hearty, delicious, filling, and yes—very healthy. Stop in to Vees Cafe today for a mouthwatering caprese, Chipotle shrimp or chicken Greek salad. While you’re there, enjoy a fresh cold-pressed juice or tasty sandwich. Check out the salad shop’s lunch menu online or call (323) 931-8337 for more information.
