Eating a salad a day is a great way to give your body a daily nutrient boost.
Aside from helping you look good, a healthy diet that includes a salad a day can help you feel better and offers various health benefits, such as building strong bones, protecting your eyesight, preventing heart disease and improving your skin tone.
A delicious main
Committed to encouraging healthy living, South Africa’s salad queen, Chantal Lascaris, says it’s officially time for the salad to take centre stage.
A longstanding champion of the home cook, Chantal sets out to celebrate salads in a way that is exciting, fun, nutritious and, most importantly, delicious, with her newest recipe collection, The Ultimate Salad Book.
Bringing together her passion for healthy living, and an invigorating variety of international flavours, it features an array of recipes that will inspire all chefs – from beginners to experts – as well as the guests seated at the table when serving!
Chantal boldly moves the salad into the realm of the main dish, while simultaneously serving up a wholesome guide to living well by eating better.
All about the nutrients
With the heat of summer steadily rolling in, there is arguably no better time to invest in some salad inspiration.
Chantal makes the recipes interesting and easy to follow, and every dish is packed full of fresh and nutrient-dense ingredients.
It’s Chantal’s passion for and understanding of the important role played by good ingredients when it comes to health and wellbeing that fuels her continued experimentation with innovative recipes that taste great and leave you feeling your best!
“I’ve always been more interested in the aspect of healthy eating, as opposed to cooking fancy meals,” says Chantal. “From the outset, I’ve tried to make cooking simple, healthy, and accessible, by giving a lot of choice with loads of flavour!”
