salad. i like it. i may order it from time to time at a restaurant. deep down, i don't get super pumped for it. i eat it because it goes well with things. i eat it because it's good for me. because it looks pretty on my plate. because it's better than a lot of other options. sometimes i eat it first to get it out of the way. salad is business. anyone with me? what do you do to make sure you get your green, leafy things? in a way that doesn't feel like a burden? here are things that help me:
-first, buy green things! believe it or not, you won't eat them unless you choose to buy them first :)
-plan. figure out how you're going to finish up the romaine before it starts wilting.
-add slices of chicken. or strawberries! or some cheese. i enjoy salad more when it has company.
-put a bowl of spinach (or whatever you have) on the table with dinner. simple.
-learn to love vinegar & oil. once you get hooked on this combo, you won't look back.
-don't let it get too complicated. if i try to toss in everything that i could possibly think of in an effort to -make the perfect salad, every time, it gets to be too much. and it won't become a habit.
-have some greens ready to eat in the fridge.
-easy one: when you make a sandwich, add something green. i'm a big sandwich lover.
-a good dressing!! this is the biggest one for me. the recipe above is one that i've been keeping on hand lately. we love it. and it makes great sandwiches, too! put it in your fridge today :)
now you tell me.
how do you help yourself love greens?
