Sometimes I just want a really filling, fresh salad for dinner! When health experts try to convince me that lettuce is a great way to fill up, however, I laugh, because…well, come on. Let’s be honest with ourselves and admit that lettuce does not leave you feeling satisfied and full! If my main course is a salad, it better be full of calorie rich foods that won’t make me feel like a ate nothing at all. This Italian Salad does the trick for me, and it is super healthy and easy to make!
Pretty much every ingredient in this salad is packed with nutrients, but two of my favorite superfoods in there are oregano and artichokes. The oregano adds a spicy kick of flavor, and is also very good at boosting your immune system and killing off harmful viruses and bacteria. Oregano is easy to grow, and I highly recommend that you keep a plant in your garden, so you can add it to your savory dishes. Try to add it after you cook your food, because the health benefits and spicy flavor are best raw. Artichokes are good for helping you detox. They are particularly useful for cleaning out your liver!
Before we get to the recipe for the Italian Salad, I want to invite you to join with others who are making healthy changes. I’d love to walk alongside you in your journey towards wholeness and health! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full!” Freedom from food addictions is part of having a truly full life.
Freedom has been on my heart lately…freedom for myself, for my family, for my readers, and for those who are under oppression. If you want to get involved with helping those who need it most, but don’t know where to start, check out International Justice Mission. They work hard and effectively to bring freedom to enslaved peoples around the world.
