Actually making the :Whiz vinegar, water, walnuts, raisins, mustard, garlic dressing for a huge sala

Saturday, September 28, 2013

See my blog a couple of weeks ago for the whole recipe.
Yes it was delicious!

Well, I finally got around to making this dressing and the salad it goes on. emoticon

For 2 servings : 10 cups of greens! and then radicchio, an apple, a pear, onion, etc. emoticon Did I say 2 servings?

The dressing makes 4 servings--note that. It is very easy to overdo on the dressing. It is truly delicious.

Maybe I am mistaken, but I thought Fuhrman wants us to have a big salad before lunch and before dinner. Is he talking about a salad like this? emoticon

At home I will eat a big salad but not usually in a restaurant. I get too messy doing it.

Also I worked pretty hard making that dressing and salad. I can't do that every 2 days. emoticon

1. What does one eat after consuming this salad. Or is this lunch? I am not sure.

2. I know to save time blended salads work well. Lots of greens and other things. It is much quicker to drink a blended salad than try to eat a salad at each lunch and dinner.
Do people really get in a "salad" or "blended salad" daily? That seems impossible to me.

3. I have done better making a big pot of soup each week. Lots can be frozen so the time in the kitchen is well spent.

4. I am finding this way of eating to be , frankly, lots of time in the kitchen. Do others find this to be true.?

Some of you already answered me on another of my blogs. You dont' have to repeat unless you want to.

I am really trying this but I am afraid I will burn out and give up the whole thing.

    Yes, there seems to be a fair bit of time in the kitchen for me also, but I'm loving it - now when I eat processed foods I don't like them so much. I'm going to search your blogs for that delicious sounding salad dressing recipe!

    We have found eating easier if we can do it quicker and find it easier to chop things up for a couple of days in containers. I do get tired of eating all the leaves so I some times chop up the greens real fine, and the smoothies also help. For the smoothies we have bags of chopped frozen spinach to make it really quick and not having to worry about having to make sure it is fresh. It also helps to make some of salads sweet with the fruit or savory with beans. If I am rushed I just use the greens and add frozen vegetables that I put in a strainer and rinse with cold water to thaw and drain for some thing different and quick. I use frozen stir fry vegetables( a bit of ginger is good with this), south western bean corn mixes( a dash of chili powder) and green peas( can go sweet or savory.) emoticon

    That is definitely a big salad! I don't think that I would want to eat anything else after eating this amount of greens! I agree with you that making soup and dividing it into portions is a better use of kitchen time - and personally, I like soup - especially in the fall and winter.

    I agree, anything so complicated leads to burn out. Real food just in moderatation with portion control can be a lifestyle that can be sustained. Don't let anything be forbidden so there will never be Guilt feelings when you have a special treat. Life is short and you must enjoy it. Don't let your menu take over your life and all of your time! JMO!
