Salads can be a quick and easy 'go-to' option, but not all salads are created equal. Opt for dark greens (kale, spinach, arugula, collards, Swiss chard...etc.). Stick to dark greens which contain the phytochemicals recommended by the MIND diet. Top up with colorful veggies like Red/Yellow/Orange/Green Peppers, Carrots, Beets, Red Cabbage...etc. Eat a rainbow!
