The days are getting brighter and the sun is shining which means it’s salad season! We’re feeling inspired to add more colour to our meals, so what spring slimming salads should you add to your recipe book?

The saying ‘the more colour you have on your plate, the healthier your meal is’ is definitely somewhat true, especially when it comes to salads.

When starting out on your fitness journey, it can be a challenge to know what ingredients you can add to your salads, without it being boring.

When the word ‘salad’ comes to mind most people think that it’s green leaves, cucumber and tomatoes. However, a salad can be so much more exciting than this and provides you with great vitamins and minerals.

At Castle Gym, we have put together a list of delicious, healthy, slimming salads for you to try this spring!
