When we’re deciding what to eat, we normally think about the fruits and vegetables that we have at home and on-hand. An issue that we’ve all run into, however, is looking in the refrigerator or freezer only to find ingredients that have been forgotten about and aren’t any good to use for a fresh recipe.

That’s why you should count on a fruit bowl that lets you see all of your fruits and vegetables! It won’t just allow you to take advantage of your produce when it’s ripest, it will even help you eat well and maintain a healthy diet. And, the design will let you “decorate” a space with all the colors of your fresh fruits and vegetables!

In this case, we’ll see how to combine spinach with pears for a fresh and nutritious salad, so you can stick to a guilt-free diet. You can serve this salad as a vegetarian main course, or feature it as a side dish with fish or poultry.

Apart from being a balanced recipe, this spinach and pear salad packs an important punch of nutrients without a high calorie count. Spinach has more protein than the majority of other vegetables, along with fiber, vitamins A, C, E, K, and the B-vitamin group. It is also a good source of folic acid and fatty omega-3 acids, and minerals like calcium, manganese, magnesium, potassium, iron, and phosphorus.

The pear is a fruit with important diuretic properties, and so it is recommended for those looking to lose a little extra weight. It can help reduce problems with retention of liquids and also has other nutrients, especially soluble fiber, to prevent constipation and reduce bad cholesterol.

Take a look at the ingredients that you’ll need to make this delicious dish, so you can grab whatever you might be missing. You’ll see that this salad has everything to become a staple in your collection of fast and easy recipes.
