我每顿饭都是从沙拉开始的。这是我每天做的典型沙拉，full of health-building antioxidants.It's probably part of the reason I simply never get sick.我半个多世纪没有感冒或流感。任何人都可以做沙拉，我想，but I'm sharing a photo of my typical salad to motivate more people to include salads with every meal.It doesn't have to be this one but eat those vegetables if you want a long and healthy life.
人们总是问我为什么我从不生病。How do I get such glowing skin?我真的七十岁了吗？这是因为我每天都做饭，而这顿饭总是包括一个沙拉和至少一个煮熟的蔬菜。Certain vegetables,像菠菜或胡萝卜，have more health benefits when cooked so have both raw and cooked veggies every day.
罗马生菜被认为是营养丰富的沙拉中最健康的选择。但我有时用红叶或黄油生菜。I always add some cabbage for its many health benefits and colored peppers.A mix of colors will provide the biggest variety of antioxidants so if I use red tomatoes,我用黄色或橙色的辣椒。If I use yellow tomatoes,然后是红辣椒。Red onions add a nice kick but that's not why I add them.Onions and garlic a loaded with immune-boosting elements.加班佐豆添加了纤维和钙，但我有时会用红芸豆。
如果我还没说服你，just look at why I make this particular salad the most – and these are only some of the health benefits since there are too many to mention:
Romaine Lettuce contains lutein for protect against vision loss,纤维，vitamins A,CKand folic acid.
Green Cabbage can protect against cancer & heart disease and boost your immune system.
Tomatoes can protect against heart disease as well as breast and prostate cancer.
红洋葱有助于增强胶原蛋白，支持骨骼健康，prevents cell damage,and supports a strong immune system.
