The Winter Salad Recipe provides you the sweet and fresh flavor of pomegranate and orange while almonds provide you with proteins, vitamins, and Omega 3.
Not only does pomegranate and orange give you freshness, but they are the elixir of youth. Especially the pomegranate has long been considered one of the most extraordinary fruits brought to you by nature, thanks to its fight against ageing.
During winter a lot of people eat hearty foods that are a bit heavy on the stomach. We eat these hearty foods, usually meat, because during the winter it is, of course, cold and so your body concentrates on maintaining your body heat.
When the body does this it sacrifices a lot more of its energy just for that, ergo people craving for protein packed foods. Now that heating is a thing we don’t burn as much energy as we used too but because of holidays or traditions we still eat those hefty meats.
Now back to the point of this salad, if you are not looking to engulf an entire turkey or chicken please consider this protein packed, light salad. It doesn’t look like much but it fills you up with a lot of nutrients, and unlike the turkey, it doesn’t make you sweat grease or feel like you want to throw up. Not saying that meat is bad for you, it helps your body a lot but, like with every food, having too much of it is bad for you, especially with meat because it can cause a little thing called heart disease, the #1 killer in America, isn’t that fun. At least while you eat this salad it doesn’t make you think of clogged arteries. So make it!!!
