Salad 101

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! =]
