Daphne Oz is doing her part to make healthy food accessible to all. The former cohost of The Chew has partnered with fast-casual restaurant chain Just Salad to create The Golden Glow Salad. The dish, which is packed with satiating fiber and antioxidants, is available at all U.S. Just Salad locations from Wednesday, September 5, through Friday, October 5.
The nutritious meal features a bed of romaine and kale topped with hemp hearts, beets, carrots, chickpeas, pickled red onions and grilled chicken. What’s more? The protein-packed menu item is also served with Just Salad’s house-made lemon basil vinaigrette.
“I’m so excited to partner with Just Salad to create my perfect bowl! Right now, I’m all about meals that are going to fuel my post-baby weight loss goals while keeping me full – and flavor always comes first!” Oz tells Us Weekly. “The Golden Glow Salad makes being healthy feel like a reward.”
Oz, 32, welcomed her third child – daughter Domenica Celine Jovanovic – back in December, and given her background as a natural foods chef, Emmy award-winning television host and New York Times Bestselling author, Just Salad was eager to partner with her. “We were drawn to Daphne’s honest, realistic and delicious approach to healthy eating and fell in love with the recipes in her book,” said Just Salad’s director of marketing, Stephen Swartz, in a press release. “We instantly knew she would be the perfect partner to design a salad that fulfills our mission to bring healthy, affordable food to everyone.”
According to Swartz, the dish’s array of healthy ingredients, which were hand-picked by Oz and Just Salad’s culinary development team, mean that in addition to being flavorful, it also boosts stamina, hydration, and energy. Consumers can also rest assured that the Golden Glow Salad is low in calories without skimping on flavor. Oz tells Us: “It’s packed with protein, antioxidants and hydration to let you glow from within.“
