Why National Salad Month

National Salad Month came about in 1992, by the National Associations of Dressing and Sauces to bring awareness, encourage and inspire people to consume more salads into their lifestyle. A salad is not all about just eating lettuce, though that can be a big part of it. There are so many other salads that can be had that are more delicious and can be even more nutritious and add the right natural herbal dressing and your taste buds will be so heavenly delighted. Some salads are high in water content making them ideal for keeping the body free of constipation due frequent bowel movement as the body is designed to have.

During National Salad Month, many people participate in events and activities that promote healthy eating and encourage the consumption of various types of salads.

Some educators and promoters offer recipe contests; many people prefer to shop at farmers' markets instead of the big box or grocery stores, while others decide to have salad-themed parties to celebrate the month. Those who want to go all in may challenge themselves or commit to consuming a salad or two a day for 31 days. Having a salad for lunch and a side salad for dinner are two easy ways to hit the target of a salad or two a day without missing a beat.
