“N.F.C. stands for nuts, fruits, and cheese,” explains Sarah Haley, a lifestyle expert and creator of The Daily Sweat workouts. “Because I pretty much just throw it together with whatever ingredients I have in my house. Plus, with those ingredients I hit a lot of the major food groups.”

Salad Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Salad Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.

Salad Wine Pairing

Salads with vinegar-based dressings don't go well with wine. Albariño, torrontés, or riesling with seafood or poultry salads in mayonnaise- or cream-based dressings; pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillion, or grüner veltliner with salads with lemon juice-based dressings.
