Today I have started the Salad Challenge on this site. Each day (for Lunch), I will be eating a salad. Ideally a different salad a day in order to branch out, but there's probably going to be lots of repeats!



Salad #1: Basic Grocery Store Caesar Salad.

Tomorrow will be homemade because I had more prep time. See ya tomorrow! Salad 1.jpg

Day 5: Revised Jennifer Anniston Salad
-Lettuce
-Feta Cheese
-Cucumber
-Pistachios
-Honey
-Salt/Pepper
-Olive Oil
-Quinoa
-Beans

I learned that even though it called for purple onion, the one I picked out was wayyy to strong and caused incredible onion breath during my day. So I opted it out.

I love this salad but there are so many variations.

Asian Salad:
  • Shredded cabbage mix
  • Slivered Almonds
  • Green onions
  • Sugar snap peas
  • Mandarin oranges
  • Crispy noodles
Dressing:
  • sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey, lime juice, ginger, salt, and pepper

I eat salads a lot, today using a food processor sliced a skinny long cucumber, some onion and tomato, used a plant base mayo which is also great for adding to mashed avocado and use that on toast, the lemon in the mayo stops the mashed avocado going brown.
