Actually, when I was low-carb'n it, I did avacado instead of the banana and it was super yummy and rather "green" tasting. I mixed stevia and coca poweder for a super-duper rich smoothie. However, even if it's good fat, it's not really good to have tons of fat I'm sure.

I have yet to do it but hear a good way to get veggies is also in the form of a smoothie...

Another way to get your "greens" without dressing is to make a green smoothie. My basic recipe is 2 cups of water, spinach (approximately 10 oz), a large banana, and frozen strawberries or mixed berries. You don't really taste the spinach, just the fruit.

Who said that salad HAD to include lettuce? Who said that you had to add dressings (both my kids and my husband prefer their salad nekkid.

Hi Ihatsalad! welcome. You are so funny. That arugula thing sounds delish. I like salads but sometimes I just don't have it in me to wash lettuce or spinach. I buy the baby spinach from Costco and that is pretty much ready to eat but still too much work. I just sometimes have sliced tomatoes with cucumbers and blue cheese crumbles or a throw together vinegarette. The veggies are the important part and regular lettuce like Iceberg has almost no nutritional value. Can't remember the last time I had that.

Cool beans! I will try that one. My fave so far is arugla, blueberries, nuts, goat cheese, and a tab of olive oil with orange balsamic vinegar.

And thanks for the welcome!

I love your name! And I think a lot of people hate traditional salad. For me to enjoy it, really really enjoy it. I add Garbonzos, beets, feta sometimes red onions, banana peppers, the kitchen sink...lol.

Welcome and enjoy!

Hello all!

After tracking my calories for a bit I have realized I am not doing enough veggies. As you can see, I don't really like a traditional salad (mostly because of the dressings I think.) I have found more yummy ideas on your boards than anywhere else. Most of the time I find complicated looking things I don't want to do, but for quick ideas and snacks you guys rock!

Thanks so much, and I don't even know ya!
