While Box Hill is known for our world famous crab cakes, our customers love all of our food, including our salads! A popular choice is our Famous Greek Salad, topped with delicious feta cheese. Continue reading to learn all about the health benefits of greek salad and feta cheese, then come on into Box Hill to satisfy your cravings!
Our Greek salad includes a healthy dose of lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers. These vegetables are low-calorie and nutrient-dense and are great additions to your diet. Salad greens have significant amounts of Vitamins A and C, potassium, and iron. They also contain antioxidants that protect your health and reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. Tomatoes also provide you with vitamin A and C, while cucumbers are a great source of potassium and are very low in calories.
Olives are a signature part of a Greek salad, and they are a healthy source of unsaturated fat. A diet of healthy unsaturated fats may help reduce your risk of heart disease, and can even help lower your blood cholesterol. However, they are high in sodium so a serving size should be around five olives.
Feta cheese is another nutritious topping, as it includes healthy amounts of protein, calcium, riboflavin, and phosphorus, to name a few. The cheese is lower in fat and calories than aged cheeses and contains more vitamins than most other cheeses. Since it is a good source of calcium, it has shown to have positive effects on bone health. A few other benefits of feta cheese include boosting your immune system, maintaining a healthy guy with helpful probiotics, preventing headaches, and preventing degenerative eye disease.
