30 Days of Thankful 2013 Edition- Day 21

Day 21

Today I'm thankful for salad. I know it's crazy, but I could seriously eat salad every day. As long as it wasn't the same salad every day. And that's the best part about salad! There are so many things that can go into a salad and make it awesome so that you could have a different yummy salad every day UNTIL YOU DIE. Plus, what easier way to get in a ton of veggies and/or fruits into your diet. If you ate 2 cups of salad with your dinner every night, BOOM! That's like 2-3 servings of your daily freggies right there. It's a no-brainer. Keeping it to mostly freggies, vinaigrette dressings, a few seeds or nuts for some good fats, lean protein on top, and you've got a healthy meal. Salad, it should always be what's for part of dinner.

Chicken Chef Salad from a few weeks ago: grilled chicken breast, yellow cherry tomatoes, shredded beets, cucumber, purple cabbage, black olives, hard-boiled egg, and REAL bacon crumbles (none of that jarred crap- I cooked my own bacon THEN CRUMBLED IT), and some bleu cheese crumbles, topped with a bleu cheese red wine vinaigrette. YUM!!!

And for this Christmas, you might wanna consider this massive hit:

    Your salads look so professional! I'm thankful for salads, too! I can't eat any right now because my stomach can't handle raw veggies so I"ll live vicariously through you! :)

    You have reinvented salads...and I agree. A salad a day gives you all the veggies and fruits you need! I practically eat one a day.... You are one smart "cookie"! And I want you to have a great weekend. These are your "salad days".

    YUM ! Now that's a good looking salad. although, I'd pass on the shredded beets. LOL !!

    If it weren't so dang cold out, I'd eat a salad 365 days a year too ! In the winter, I tend to eat more warm veggies like sweet potatoes, squash, spinach, etc.

    Salads are amazing. It's so awesome how you can go from a Greek Salad, to a Taco salad with just a few adjustments. Feta cheese and artichokes, or black beans and salsa? A world of flavors easy accessible!
