Eat your greensPosted: May 25, 2010
Since I’ve been at the hospital all day, I’ve been doing a lot of snacking in place of meals. Not my preferred manner of eating. No big deal (well at least it shouldn’t be, except that I’m a disordered eater, but I don’t really want to talk about that right now.) Anyway, when I’m in my own kitchen and not a waiting room outside the ICU, I love me some salads. Salads are really great in the spring and summer months when the temps start to climb, but I crave them almost as much in the winter as well. Most people think all salads are the same: boring, unfillling, a meal-starter, not a meal in themselves. But I have become a master of salad combinations. My salads are tasty and filling. Here are a few of the salads I’ve been fueling with lately…
The 5 G Salad: massaged kale, sprouted lentils, avocado, broccoli, and cilantro in a orange-tahini dressing.
The Walnut Salad: walnut pate (walnuts, carrots, Bragg’s) on a bed of spinach and massaged kale with Ezekiel tortilla chips on the side.
