Quick Salad Recipes - All You Need Is Just 5 minutes!


Back to back meetings? Never ending work? Crowded lunch time food places? Hottest time of the day and you don't want to break a sweat? Expensive lunch menus?

If you can relate to any of the above, this article is for you!

Here are 4 really, really quick salad recipes that you can make them at home in just 5 minutes. That's right, you didn't read it wrongly. 5 minutes it is.

The endless work that we struggle day to day forces us to be constantly looking for quick fix for every single thing we do to just save us a bit of time. But as much as it is important to work hard to put food on our table, it is also equally important to ensure that the food we put in allows our body to provide our family for as long as we can. The choices you make each day is going to make a difference in 20,30 years time to come. You might not see or feel it now, but it will come. We cannot escape ageing, time will catch up with you. But we have an option to age wisely or deteriorate. If you have a chance to write your future in 30 years time, would you rather be be enjoying a holiday with your children or even grandchildren at a beautiful mountain watching sunsets - sickness free or be home bound, popping in medications to control your blood pressure/cholesterol/diabetes etc due to the body that you hadn't been taking care of for the past 20 years?

The choice is yours.

If you haven't been eating well in the past, fret not. All it takes is just 5 minutes of your time each day from now onwards that will make a difference in your health. Now, we can start with fixing your lunch. 😉 Not only these recipes are super easy, they are also wallet friendly too!

Even if you're not into salads or meal preparations, a simple twerk to your lunch (for eg. switching from a fried fish noodle soup to a slice fish noodle soup) makes a whole lot of difference.

So here we go!

If you are interested in more nutrition, we have recently launched a weight loss nutrition e-book, in partnership with Radmad, to bring you more insights on how nutrition can directly affect your emotions and energy levels. Not only so, you'll understand how macro and micronutrients are the key to sustainable weight loss. We don't advocate any particular diets, but instead, we want to educate you with all the knowledge of nutrition so that you will never ever have to diet again. All calories are not created equal, likewise, not all bodies are created the same. Our bodies are equally unique and beautiful in our own individual ways. What worked for one might not work for another. Therefore, there is no fixed diet and food shouldn't be seen as a reward.

The key is to understand how food is the source to nourish your body. When your body is well nourished with the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals, weight loss will follow.


If you are interested to get a copy, it's on sale now at only $29.90!

Not only you'll get a comprehensive nutrition knowledge on macro and micronutrients, we have also included 20 healthy recipes (vegetarian recipes included!) inside it!
