Several years ago, my husband’s cardiologist strongly encouraged us to transition to a vegan diet. Honestly, as a home chef, I couldn’t fathom cooking a 100% vegan diet. So we opted to compromise by adding more vegetables and various types of vegetables in our diet. One way we quickly accomplished this taskwas with the Eat Smart Super 7 Salad Mix available at Costco. This salad mix is a cool, efficient and cost-effective way to get more veggies in your diet, especially cruciferous vegetables that researchers are studying in regards to cancer prevention. The Eat Smart Super 7 Salad Mix includes broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, chicory, and kale. The package also includes a package of dried cranberries and roasted pumpkin seeds rounding out the “Super 7” and a separate package of poppyseed dressing. I am not particularly fond of poppyseed dressing so we subbed with a quick olive oil vinaigrette. I generally just toss the package of poppyseed dressing that has quite a bit of fat in it.
All I can say is “wow.” Regardless of your sustenance plan – regular, vegan, vegetarian, anti-cancer, Omega, Mediterranean or plant-based plans – this salad mix is a great, easy veggie option.
Here’s my first stir-fry – Shrimp Soybean Stir fry!
Other potential options for the salad can include vegetable soups, burritos, spring rolls, tacos, and of course, variations on a theme of salads! Since I first wrote this blog in 2013, Eat Smart offers smaller bags of similar vegetable mixes with Asian, Southwest, beet, and other healthy options to help you get as many vegetables in as possible in one sitting. Enjoy!
