Breakfast salads are a super-easy way to load up on fresh vegetables and fruits. You can toss them together quickly and they’re light, fresh while still being filling. As long as you have a good source of protein and some healthy fats on there, the salad will keep you full until your next meal without weighing you down.

Green Salad Summer Plate with Lime Dressing

Antioxidants give fruits and vegetables their different colors so a handy way to make sure you’re getting a good range of antioxidants and different health benefits is to choose those you like from each of the five different color groups – Red, Purple & Blue, Orange & Yellow, White & Brown, and Green. They all have their benefits but today I am sharing a recipe with Green veggies and fruits – Salad Summer Plate with Orange Dressing.

Dressing Ingredients

Green vegetables and fruits are great foods with a wide variety of nutrients, especially nutrient dense dark green fruits and veggies. Green fruits and veggies contain calcium, dietary fiber, antioxidants and a variety of vitamins. This Summer Salad Plate has all my favorite fruits – Avocado, Kiwi, Pear, Green Apple, Cucumber. Toss this salad with homemade fresh lime juice dressing.

No Sugar Dhokla

Made from besan this dish is nutritious, low calorie, protein-rich recipe ideal for breakfast or snack time. But this Dhokla is little different. It’s Sugarless. Generally, we add sugar to make dhokla little sweet. So I replace sugar with orange juice or mousambi juice. It makes dhokla tastier and healthier.
