Healthy salad for men

Chef Ben Patterson, UCHealth Memorial Hospital shows us a salad for men that incorporates cool alternatives to normal salad fare that are items typically liked by men.

Healthy Greens – Romaine and Tuscan Kale which are softer and better to eat than the fibrous stereotypical Kale.

Lean Meat – Filet or Sirloin. Sirloin is a lean alternative that is less price prohibitive so the dish is approachable for more frequent use.

Healthy Fats – Avocado, Avocado Oil and Swiss Cheese

Broccoli – contains indoles which helps prevent testosterone form into estrogen

Balsamic Vinegar and orange segments– Salt is a flavor enhancer that is over used and good acids can replace the salt with a like effect on the palate.

Protein Crunch for crouton substitute that will be toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
