Promotional Items for National Salad Month
Wednesday, May 1st, 2013
Chef’s salad, cobb salad, caesar salad, caprese salad, potato salad, fruit salad, iceberg wedge – with so many different salads from around the world, it’s no wonder that in America we have dedicated a whole month to them! May is National Salad Month. The history of salads goes back many centuries as simple mixed greens were enjoyed by ancient Romans and Greeks. Today, salads can be made with different greens, proteins, fruits, vegetables, nuts, dressings – the combinations are practically endless. And while salads can help one maintain a healthy diet, providing fiber, minerals and other vital nutrients, we all know that salads are not all created equal when it comes to added ingredients full of fat and calories. Many salads that are supposed to be “healthy” meals are loaded with cheese and thick dressings, boosting their fat and caloric contents to compete with those of fast food burgers and fries. So this month, why not learn how to create more healthful salads that are still rich in ingredients and flavors. Encourage your employees and clients to take advantage of National Salad Month by doing so as well, and give them promotional salad items such as a salad bowl container to take their salad on the go. And while they are improving their diets, encourage them to improve their fitness level too with promotional fitness accessories!
