Meet Glen, who creates these Best Salad Recipes Ever. Glen began creating delicious salads after his doctor told him he could no longer eat the way he had been eating for over 30 years. The doctor said “EAT MORE VEGGIES,” to control your carbohydrates or soon you will be diabetic. Having to eat more fruits and vegetables seemed like a daunting task, too time consuming and boring. Glen really didn’t have a choice so he decided to put his heart and soul into eating healthier foods and the result is this collection of recipes and a healthier Glen.
Being a creative artist he found his passion in making beautiful salads that were delicious to eat and artistically arranged, the health benefits were phenomenal. Using simple tools to prepare fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables he created a different salad several times a week for the past several years. The goal was to incorporate more vegetables and fruits into his diet while making them taste delicious. His collection has grown to an impressive display of unique salads.
Sharon taste tested each salad and enjoyed them for her lunches and suppers. She wanted to preserve them forever because they were so beautiful, so she started a photo collection of these unique salads. As the photo collection grew she was inspired to create a website to share these one of a kind salads and inspire others to eat healthier.
With the help of WA University she was able to learn how to create a user friendly website and keep up with the technology to maintain it. As an added benefit Sharon became healthier too. That is how this website came to be.
Below is a collage of a few of the salads. If you look closely each salad is different.
