I was very humbled by the people that reached out to thank me for writing again. Your hugs and prayers and candles and thoughts have meant a lot to me.
I have the most amazing friends. I love you guys. I feel warm like a cozy, healing blanket.
One good friend commented my posts have been pretty heavy, no pun intended of course!
So today I figured a salad post would lighten things up a bit.
This has been my go to staple.
When one gives up sugar, wheat and dairy - fresh greens is one of the few foods one can eat. But who wants to chew like a cow eating cud????
The trick is to chop the heck out of the salad.
But first, please pick green GREENs. Iceberg lettuce has barely ANY nutritional value. And no taste. I swear my nose wrinkles like a rabbit every time I think of iceberg.
David, our wonderful household shopper, gets a big 'ol smooch when he comes home with a big box of organic baby kale, chard, spinach from BJ's and a roast chicken. We chop it up, add some sea salt, pepper, EVOO, lemon or vinegar of some sort, (I like white balsamic or champagne wine vinegar). Sometimes I add quinoa or tuna or egg for some complex carbs and protein. Yum.
I beleive in chopped salad so much, I keep a cutting board and knife at work to prep my lunch.
So there you have it. A light salad post, just heavy on taste.
