Recipe creator's comment: "Now while I have been indulging in salads all winter long and bulking them up with some kind of grain and winter-ish veggie (and loved it), I’m really excited to lighten it up a bit, hit that detox button and make way for more of those super vibrant, airy fruits and veggies. These Spring Detox Mason Jar Salads are the perfect way to welcome all the spring-time feels.😊 "

💚WHY Healthy?💚 

It's getting warmer and spring is just around the corner. Would you like to make our meal perfect for spring? We have many vegetables and fruits in spring after a cold winter that support your health. 

For example, there are many children and adults who love sweet and sour strawberries, which are used in this salad. This strawberry is actually very nutritious, and according to the healthline.com's article's article, because strawberries contain a lot of water, their calories and sugars are relatively low. In addition, the sweetness of strawberries is simple sugars, which are your body’s preferred carb-based energy source and are safe for diabetic patients. Simple sugars are an effective source of energy and improve your blood flow. Strawberries also contain a lot of vitamins, so you can expect a beauty effect. 

Moreover, this salad is rich in non-starchy vegetables, such as cabbage, carrots and broccoli. ADA says that these vegetables are nutritious and have an effect to keep you feeling full longer, in spite of being low in calories and carbs. We can say making meals with them is effective for people with diabetes. Let's spend a warm spring healthy, with fresh vegetables and fruits!
