Thanks to the broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage, this salad is jam-packed with fiber to keep you full.
Actually, we went straight to the folks at Pinterest to find out what the most-pinned of all the pinned salads were.
And since we know that not all popular salad recipes on Pinterest are great for losing weight (we can't quit you, buffalo chicken salad), we asked Keri Gans, a registered dietitian in New York City, to evaluate the list for us.
From there, she gave us her top three picks for veggie-packed dishes that can help you lose more weight.
The best part, none of them include lettuce! Boom.
Add one (or all three) of these salads to your weekly lunch rotation.
3. Crunch 'Detox' Salad
Though we can't help but hate the word "detox," this recipe is seriously good for weight loss (and also just seriously good).
Thanks to the broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage, this salad is jam-packed with fiber to keep you full. Plus, the sunflower seeds and almonds contain healthy fat, which keeps you satisfied.
Cauliflower and broccoli also contain a wealth of anti-inflammatory nutrients, and since inflammation has been associated with weight loss that could help you get closer to your goals.
Adding more lean protein, such as tofu, eggs, or chicken, will also help keep you more satiated, says Gans.
