Salads have a cooling effect on our bodies. During cooler months when temps are low, eating cooling foods like salads can cool us down too much, creating an imbalance in our body.
Yet, sometimes we crave salads even when its cold outside.
Create a salad that includes both raw and cooked veggies. Roast some of your favorite seasonal veggies and combine them with raw leafy greens. Roasted vegetables have a warming effect on the body and they will balance out the cooling effect of the raw vegetables.
