Healthy Salad From My Mother

Salad is a meal consisting of a variety of vegetables, although there is also use fruit as the ingredients . But in my country, the food is more synonymous with salad vegetables. The basic ingredients of the salad was raw vegetables. Often the salad is served with a sauce or dressing including oil and an acid. As long as they are not consumed by the excess sauce, salad would be foods that have low calories, but high in fiber. We can also add meat in it as an additional source of protein, it can be chicken or beef.

my mother's salad

Today, December 22 is Mother's Day in Indonesia. And this afternoon my mother came to visit me. We did not stay one house, because she lived with father, and I live with my Grandmother. Mom brought me a portion of my favorite salads. Mother knows if on a Saturday afternoon, I would do my workout at home. Of course it makes me very happy, because after a workout is a good time to replace nutrients lost body.

My mother sent me a salad after he returned from her office, and he went home after giving it. After half an hour my workout done, then I prepare a salad to eat. My mother knew that I had to undergo healthy lifestyle and eating well. I am very fond of eating vegetables. So she prepared her salad with a healthy as possible. He also knows that I'm reducing the food is fried, and that contain high sugar and salt. For the layman, maybe ​​the salad dressing that my mom made will taste bland, but for me it is something that is very tasty and healthy, because the salad was really special to me. ;D

The contents of the salad was :
  • Carrots
  • Bean
  • Potato
  • Lettuce
  • Peas
  • Onion
  • Pickled cucumbers with red onion
  • Tomatoes
  • Chicken with no bone, no skin, and no fat.

And I think the ingredients to make a salad dressing is also the same as another regular salad from Indonesia, that was :
  • Yolk
  • Vinegar
  • A little sugar and salt
  • Mayonnaise
  • Garlic
  • Onion
Many people think salads always contain good nutrition. So many people are on a diet and addicted to eat salad. However, we should know that the salad has many variations. You can buy a salad at a restaurant, but always pay attention to the content of the salad. Does it have a lot of ingredients that are fried? Is the meat used is high in fat? One more thing to note, that the salad dressing typically use a lot of mayonnaise. Mayonnaise contains fat and cholesterol which is quite high, because mayonnaise is made from egg yolks. Not to mention the salad dressing also uses egg yolk as an additive. This means that inside the content, there will be a lot of egg yolk. For that reason you have to be wise in using the dressing in your salad. As you can see in my salad, although my mother was making a salad dressing as healthy as possible, but I still only use a little salad dressing. However, it still does not diminish the delicacy of my mom's salad.

thanks Mom

So, keep healthy, keep tasty :)


  1. I love my salad with dinner everyday. It's got lots of veggies, and my dressing is a low fat dressing.

    Lots of people do think that having a salad is a low fat choice, but that dressing can give you more calories than if you had something else like a sandwich with light mayonnaise. You've got to check out what you're eating and not assume it's low fat.

    You're mother did a very nice thing by bringing you a healthy salad.

    Have a terrific day my grandson. :)

  2. Oh and Happy Mother's Day to your mom and grandma too. :)

  3. Everyday? of course you have to make some variations to avoid boredom. That's right, the salad will remain healthy if it's not consumed with excess sauce and oils.
