I love salad! Here’s how I make mine:
First, I assemble the ingredients. Today it’s organic turkey breast, lime, grapefruit (not shown), kale, celery, garlic, celery and avocado.
Then I get out a BIG bowl. I eat a HUGE salad. It all breaks down to nothing in your tummy, so you can pig out on salads.
Next, I make the dressing in the bottom of the bowl. Today I mashed up an avocado, squeezed in 1/2 each grapefruit/lime. Sprinkled in some red pepper flakes and sea salt. Whipped it up till creamy with a wire whisk. I could have added just a tad of real maple syrup, too. That would have been good, but I forgot =/
I make my own croutons by toasting a slice of Ezekiel Bread…
I butter it (real butter. Margarine is 4-letter word here at Skinnyandfit!) Then I rub it all over with a garlic clove and sprinkle with sea salt.
I chop it up into cubes, and – voila’- homemade croutons, minus preservatives and artificial ingredients. Yum!
Hope you’re not getting bored. There’s just a few more steps….
I tear the greens into smaller pieces and toss into bowl (kale, in this case) , stir to coat with dressing.
Then I chop up the veggies and meat (if I’m having meat. Most times, I don’t)….
Toss it all together, and bon appetit!
I try to eat salad for lunch every day.
Hope this helps somebody out there! =]
