Can’t Decide What to Eat? Try One of These Salad Kits.

If there’s one thing experts agree on, it’s that we should eat more vegetables. But sometimes it’s hard to come up with a new, interesting, and easy dish. And salad bars aren’t exactly an example of food safety, most of the time.

The Eat Smart brand of gourmet vegetable salad kits is to the rescue. Below we’ll review their ingredients, nutrients, and will tell you where to buy them.

Eat Smart’s Sweet Kale Vegetable Salad Kit “contains 7 superfoods,” as the label says. That would be broccoli, brussels sprouts, green cabbage, kale, chicory, dried cranberries, and roasted pumpkin seeds.

9 Ways to Pick the Best Healthy Lunch Meats

Talk about confusing. A “natural” or “no nitrites added” lunch meat could deliver as much nitrite as a lunch meat that lists sodium nitrite in the ingredients list. And a “lower sodium” lunch meat could have more salt than a lunch meat that makes no sodium claims.

Labels will say whatever it takes to get your attention. Forget the malarkey. Here are nine ways to choose the best healthy lunch meats before you break out the mustard.

1. Know your serving.

Cutting back on salt? When looking at nutrition labels, the answer may seem obvious, but there’s a catch: ounce for ounce, the one may have less sodium and just look like it has more because its label uses a 2oz. serving, while the other uses 1oz. Bottom line: before you compare lunch meats, make sure you’re looking at the same serving size.
