One of the dietary recommendations for liver disease patients is to include more vegetables and fruits in the diet. Among the best ways to achieve this is the preparation of healthy salads.

For many users, salads are associated with bland and unsatisfying meals, but this could not be further from the truth. Creating healthy and delicious salads is possible if you know the basic ingredients to prepare them, and you can boost the functioning of the liver thanks to these if you integrate elements with certain nutrients.

HOW TO MAKE A HEALTHY SALAD FOR THE LIVER?

A healthy salad contains a variety of nutrients, carbohydrates and good quality proteins

The liver enzymes that regulate the functions of this organ require a significant intake of B vitamins, particularly vitamins B1, B6 and B12, which contribute to the purification and detoxification of the liver. 

Some foods that are rich in vitamins B1 are lentils and pork, both proteins that can be integrated into salads. 

On the other hand, vitamin B6 can be found in whole grains, nuts, avocado and green vegetables. 

Vitamin B12 is concentrated in dairy, fish, meat and cheese, as well as in soy ferments, tempeh and seaweed.

A healthy salad contains a variety of nutrients, carbohydrates and good quality protein to make it delicious and provide you with a feeling of satiety.
