Let’s talk about salad, not the bagged kind.

Salad, a dish many people don’t like to eat because let’s face it, it’s boring.  The bland lettuce, tossed with some grated cheese and cruton, drizzled with some ceasar dressing, doesn’t sound like a taste bud party.  Here at The Library we aim to try and be healthy and concious about what we put into our body and how we exercise without having to worry about sacraficing the things we like, like flavor.  This Spinach Salad with Peaches and Peacans recipe is sure to change your mind about wanting to eat salad.

Peacans contain 19 vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, vitamin E, calcium, potassium and zinc which makes up for having to take those huge multivitamin pills everyday, so peacans whether it be a snack, in your salad, or with your breakfast.  Peaches are a healthy way to fit in your source of fruit for the day.  Spinach is a great source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, and iron.  These three simple ingredients can make up a wonderful salad that is packed with butrients vital to living a healthy lifestyle.  So eat more salads but jazz it up and stop thinking it’s boring.
