I eat a lot of salad. I enjoy it. Not only do I feel great from eating salad, but a *good* salad is delicious. But the thing is that not all salads are created equal! You can’t compare an iceberg garden salad to a hearty bowl of Who’s Kale, am I right?
So when an acquaintance on my Facebook page wall started a thread about how she ate a salad for lunch and couldn’t understand how people ate them, I got a little worked up. Dozens of people started to post on her wall in agreement. Talk about negative press for salad!
Being the salad lover that I am + the fact that it’s the middle of summer with lots of great produce available, I challenged myself to #30DaysofSalad–I started to eat a large salad for one of my meals every day. Some days I was a bit rushed or short on groceries with less satisfying or interesting salads, but overall I ate a huge number of delicious, exciting, satisfying salads.
And you know what?
I’d do it again.
I probably eat a large salad anyways for about 4 meals a week, but bumping that up to 7 salads a week really made me crave more salad. I enjoyed every bite! AND I started to become more innovative and engaged in the creative salad making process. It was great! I think I’ll make this an annual ritual.
