Do you sometimes feel “blah” and low on energy?
Having a hard time getting those excess pounds to budge?
Need a body “miracle”?
Well, I would like to share with you one of my best weight loss secrets. It is my ultimate 7 ingredient salad recipe.
You mix and match just seven ingredients to get 7 different salads. Eat one every day as one of your vegetable servings.
The salads are full of the ‘B’ and ‘C’ vitamins your body needs not only to lose weight but also to make energy.
The reason a lot of women are low on energy is because the foods they eat regularly are too high in salt, fat, and sugar (energy drainers) and too low on foods rich in ‘B’ and ‘C’ vitamins, and minerals zinc and iron (energy makers).
Your body can’t extract the energy from your food efficiently without these nutrients and the best way to get them is to eat them.
And if you have a high stress lifestyle, a good diet is essential because stress depletes these vitamins and minerals faster than just about anything else!
Okay, enough of the technical talk. Here is the recipe:
* 1 head of red cabbage
* 2 bags of mixed greens
* 3 red onions
* 4 cucumbers
* 5 carrots
* 6 plum tomatoes
* Low fat vinaigrette dressing
Salad #1: Marinated greens
2 cups of mixed greens marinated with ¼ cup of vinaigrette

Can hardly wait to get energized by the seven savvy salads
Hi Kimberly! Found you while looking for energy foods; love your info. A few questions regarding the miracle salad. Is each recipe for 1 serving? I am nightshade free, so no tomatoes or store bought dressings (most food companies will tell me if they have nightshades, but many just tell me not to use their product). Is there a substitute for the tomatoes/would it make a difference to leave them out? And, do you have a recipe for low fat vinaigrette that I can make myself? Thanks for any help and I look forward to reading more on your website!
Hi Linda – thanks for writing! Each recipe is for 1 serving. I would just leave the tomatoes out, or if you like or can tolerate radishes or mushrooms, you can substitute those. As for dressing, I just combine 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. 1/4 tsp. onion powder, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and Stevia to my taste. I also just Google’d “low-fat vinaigrette’ and found this recipe that looks good: https://www.food.com/recipe/basic-olive-oil-and-vinegar-vinaigrette-weight-watchers-215661. There may be others you can find via search. God bless you!
I was reading about your 7 salads and wanted to know if they are just that a salad with a meal or if the salad is the meal and can I sub the cucumbers for something els
Hi Wayne, the salad can be with a meal. As for substitutions – that is fine as long as the food you want to substitute is not a starchy one (potatoes, corn, pasta, bread products).
