There are four benefits from eating salads:
1. Eat Salads for the Fiber
Eating a high-fiber diet can help lower cholesterol levels and prevent constipation
2. Eat Salads for the Health Benefits of Fruits and Vegetables
If you frequently eat green salads, you'll likely have higher blood levels of a host of powerful antioxidants (vitamin C and E, folic acid, lycopene, and alpha- and beta-carotene,) especially if your salad includes some raw vegetables. Antioxidants are substances that help protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.
3. Eat Salads to Cut Calories and Increase Satisfaction
Rolls, lead researcher of a prominent study, suggests that "bigger is better" as long as the salad is bigger in volume, not in calories - which means more veggies and less dressing and other fatty add-ons.
4. Eat Salads to Get Smart Fats
Eating a little good fat (like the monounsaturated fat found in olive oil, avocado and nuts) with your vegetables appears to help your body absorb protective phytochemicals, like lutein from dark green vegetables. - Taken from Web MD
