Mira Kapoor swears by healthy eating and her food choices have proved it time and again. A while ago, she revealed some of her favourite foods in an Ask Me Anything session on Instagram. Apart from this, she also loves her salads, the mother-of-two revealed recently.

Posting two back-to-back pictures of scrumptious salads, Mira wrote, “…once in a while I just dig into a bowl full of salad and relish it like a kid in a pizza place.”

The first picture is that of what Mira called “clean-out-the-fridge” Rainbow Salad. This is made with “fresh salad leaves, grated carrot, bell peppers, cucumber, plum, kiwi, walnuts and seeds, a basic vinaigrette topped with Aamras.” “Ofcourse you can add a grain to ground the salad but I like it crisp and fresh,” Mira further wrote.

Not a word salad! I usually eat warming foods that nourish the stomach, spleen and gut and keep all Doshas balanced. Largely Indian home-cooked meals that are inherently a balanced plate. But once in a while I just dig into a bowl full of salad and relish it like a kid in a pizza place. The first one is a “clean-out-the-fridge” sort of Rainbow salad, with fresh salad leaves, grated carrot, bell peppers, cucumber, plum, kiwi, walnuts and seeds, a basic vinaigrette topped with Aamras. (The kids loved this) Ofcourse you can add a grain to ground the salad but I like it crisp and fresh. The second is a take on the classic caprese salad, with baby mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, olives, my favourite greens- baby spinach, freshly plucked basil, homegrown micro red amaranth, salt, pepper and the tomato cranberry relish from @thegourmetjar. Cheat your cheat! #cheatdaygoneclean
