How much salad should we eat per day? It’s more than what you think?

The average person should be consuming 5 to 10 cups per day. You may think that you can skip the salad and go straight to vitamin supplements, smoothies, and shakes. Don’t do it! Nothing can replace the nutrients contained in real food in its natural state.

Concentrated vitamins and minerals (often synthetic) may not be absorbed well and too much of anything can become toxic. Consuming protein shakes can spike your blood glucose levels and increase your toxic load.
