Butter lettuce, avocado, walnuts, cucumber and carrot

  1. Butterhead lettuce, also called cabbage lettuce, is of course super healthy because of the fiber and minerals, but that's not all. A head of lettuce contains about one fifth of the daily amount of vitamin A. Lettuce also contains a large amount of folic acid, extra good for when you want to become or are pregnant. The avocado is an outsider when it comes to fruit, because it is not full of fruit sugars but with proteins and unsaturated fats, exceptional! So an avocado is actually a good substitute for fish for those who are vegetarian. An avocado contains three times more fiber than, for example, a banana. Walnuts are the healthiest nuts you can eat. They are packed with omega 3 fats, essential for healthy blood vessels, a strong heart and low cholesterol. In addition, walnuts contain phytochemicals that lower inflammation, vitamin E that protects you against oxidation. In addition, walnuts contain calcium, iron, potassium, copper, magnesium, selenium and zinc. So you get the full range of necessary minerals from a walnut. But walnuts also contain unique substances such as melatonin, which is essential for a good night's sleep. Cucumbers are not only high in fiber and water, they also contain folic acid, phosphorus, zinc and magnesium. So they are not only filling, they are also very healthy! For the variation you add carrots. A healthy salad contains many colors, so a little orange with all that green won't hurt. A carrot is full of beta-carotene, vitamin C and contains a reasonable amount of fruit sugars, in combination with the other ingredients this ensures that you can get energy from that carrot for a long time.

  1. How do you prepare this recipe?

  1. Wash the lettuce well. Cut the avocado in half and turn the halves so that you spoon out the stone. Cut the avocado halves in half again and peel off the skin. Dice the avocado. Peel half a cucumber with a cheese slicer and cut it into thick pieces. Peel the carrot and cut it nicely into cubes. You can try to break walnuts with your bare hands, a nice strength exercise, if one doesn't work, try squeezing two against each other. Otherwise, use a nutcracker. Add the ingredients to the salad and enjoy.
