Healthy Benefits of today’s Salad Recipe

  • Fresh Peaches- a moderate source of antioxidants and vitamin C which is required for the building of connective tissue inside the human body. Consumption of foods that are rich in vitamin C helps a person develop resistance against infections and helps to eliminate harmful free radicals that cause certain cancers.
  • Gorgonzola Cheese- is very rich in vitamin B2, B6, B12, which are extremely important for the nervous system and the immune system. For these reasons, Gorgonzola is known and loved all over the world, as well as being the third most important Italian cow milk DOP cheese.
  • Chicken- has a very high protein content, which plays a very important role in sustaining our muscles. Rich in calcium and phosphorous for healthy bones. Stress reliever with tryptophane and vitamin B5. Immunity booster too!
  • Spinach- an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2. Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables richer in vitamin K than spinach.
  • Basil- is an excellent source of vitamin K, manganese, iron, vitamin A, and vitamin C. It’s also a good source of calcium, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids. 
  • Sea Salt- is mostly composed of sodium chloride, a compound that helps regulate fluid balance and blood pressure in the body. Since it’s minimally processed, it contains some minerals, including potassium, iron, and calcium
