We are still eating salads several times a week. Not just because we’re trying to lose a little weight (which is not going very well due to dark chocolate somehow finding its way into our house), but mainly because salads are so healthy. There are many advocates of a half raw food diet, in other words, half of our diet should be fresh, uncooked fruits and veggies. One thing I know, I feel better when I’m on that type of diet but it’s hard to do during the cold months of winter. Now that warm weather has arrived, it will be much easier to do! So our menu this week will incorporate as many raw foods as possible:
Monday: Chef Salad made with
- Organic Spring Mix Salad Greens
- Hormel Natural Choice Smoked Deli Turkey, cut into bite-sized pieces
- Chopped organic baby carrots
- Fresh avocado
- Green Olives
- Extra virgin olive oil to drizzle on top of veggies
- Fresh ground black pepper and sea salt
Tuesday: Chef Salad
Wednesday: Chicken Pasta, green salad
Thursday: Left-over Chicken Pasta, green salad
There’s one week left in my WordWorld T-shirt giveaway, your choice of your child’s favorite WordWorld character.
Also, watch for a WordWorld DVD giveaway coming soon.
I love avocado in salads and in guacamole, but lately i have a hard time finding a good avocado: not too soft, not too dry.
I know someone who tries to eat a raw diet all the time. Some of the recipes she comes up with are very interesting.
