I’ve noticed a lot of websites have copied and republished our “HGH Salad” article I originally published in 2009. It’s being copied because the strategy I lay out is sound and the salad ingredients raise your nutritional status  plus it’s ultra convenient.
The HGH Salad Solves Nutrition For a Busy ScheduleWe all have busy schedules and it’s really hard to get the right meals   on a regular basis. After a lot of research and investigation I designed a quick way to raise my nutrition and help an HGH supplement work better. I’ve nicknamed it the “HGH Salad” because this “one container” meal has a very high nutritional profile. 
The idea behind the salad is to create a “one container” meal source that has a great variety of natural, whole foods, meets the 5-servings-of-fruit-and-vegetables-per-day, is mostly unprocessed, fresh, high in fiber, high in vitamins and very tasty.  It’s tasty enough to eat every day. Once made, it easily lasts for a week. (make a “tub” of it Sunday night and it’ll last the week)
Dice, chop or (for tofu) cube all ingredients. This allows for easy mixing, portioning and the ability to eat it with a spoon right from a small container.
– Kale (GREAT source of potassium)
– Parsley Cilantro
– Peas (frozen)
– Bok Choy
– Red Pepper
– Kidney Beans
– Raisins Almonds
– Garbonzo Beans
– Extra virgin olive oil
– Apple cider vinegar
– Lemon juice
– Mrs. Dash seasoning
– Hot sauce
Spinach and Tomatoes are conspicuously absent. They don’t last very well. They could be added on the day of serving. 
All of the above is otherwise very hardy. Remember you want this to last a week in the fridge.
Use extra virgin olive oil  liberally (it’s a “good” fat) and apple cider vinegar.  Splash on lemon juice. Use Mrs. Dash liberally. A “mild” red hot sauce adds some zest. Mix, toss and turn until well blended.
You may keep in a large container or pack into smaller “daily” containers, ready to grab and go.
Awesome Salad Dressing:
I’ve have discovered a wonderful dressing that’s perfect for the HGH Salad. You’ll need a separate container to mix this in but again, it’s worth it!
6 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 teaspoons yellow mustard
2 cloves garlic, crushed & finely chopped
a little ground pepper
Whisk the ingredients until blended and then drip onto your HGH Salad!
If the taste is too strong you can add a little honey.
We typically double the above amounts and store it in the frig for quick & easy access.
Word of warning – the Costco brand of olive oil “Kirkland” does not work well and tends to turn the dip into “gunk” when refrigerated.
If your GI track is not used to olive oil I recommend “go light” for the first couple of days until your GI track gets used to it.
