When to eat salad (and how!)
The rule is to listen to what your body tells you and to say yes to salads whenever it feels right. You should always find room for delicious, healthy garden vegetables in your diet. If you find lettuce hard to digest in the evening, swap it for other green leaves, such as spinach or rocket.
And if you’re making a light salad for dinner, steer clear of fatty cheeses or nuts, which are packed with calories. A light, balanced and healthy tomato and avocado salad with some protein in the form of tuna or chicken breast makes an ideal evening meal.
