I am on a huge salad craze right now.
I recently read "Born To Run" (a great read BTW, it will make you want to run even if you have never enjoyed it)
In the book there was a nutritionist working with the author and she suggested to him salad for breakfast. I have been doing it for about 3 weeks and I really notice a difference. It is like coffee now, if I don't have it I crave it.
I do a huge bowl up on Sunday for my son and I to use over the week.
small dice celery
small dice carrot
small dice bell pepper
small dice Gr Onion
chopped fresh cilantro
chopped fresh basil
ground sea salt
Cooked Chick Peas (Garbanzo Beans)
Mix that all up and and put in a container in the fridge, then when you want salad chop up some red leaf lettuce or whatever then add a couple scoops of the above mentioned veggie combo... hit it with a really small amount of equal parts Sesame Oil (get the good stuff, dark bottle usually means good) and White Vinegar.
Sometimes I take 2, one for breakfast and one to go with my lunch.... My son won't even do the oil and Vinegar, he calls himself a purist... I laugh.
