Blue Berry Salad would be spinach, strawberries, blueberries, feta cheese, chicken breast, walnuts and even goat cheese. Top this salad with a poppy seed dressing or raspberry vinaigrette. This is delicious. Carrots are on the top of the list of must eat foods because they provide Vitamin A and fiber.
