Do I like salad? Sure. I love vegetables and I think its a great way to get ’em in your diet if you have trouble doing that.
Do I think a salad is a meal? No. They just don’t satisfy me. And there is a 95% chance (never say never) that you won’t see me eat a salad as a meal. Maybe as a side dish to cram some extra veg action in, but not as my main dish.
Today I had a debate with myself about what I wanted for lunch. I knew what ingredients I wanted: avocado and tomato.
I just debated whether I should have them in salad form or in sandwich form. Sure, I probably still would have had two pieces of toasted sprouted bread on the side, but why would I want to do that when I could have all of the ingredients I wanted in between that delicious bread?
Then I called myself crazy for even debating and made a phenom ‘which.
Half of an avocado, cream cheese, a whole big tomato, butter lettuce, sprinkled with sea salt, between two slices of Alvarado St. Bakery sprouted bread with salsa to dip it into. Uh.. Yeah. If its at all possible, its better than it sounds.
+ Some Fage 2% on the side.
Then tragedy struck. I was about to reach my hand in the cashew bag, but it was missing! (I’m visiting home right now so someone in the fam ate them, they didn’t just disappear) So, I immediately got into the car to go to get more cashews. Naturally.
I obviously didn’t eat enough for lunch becaue about 2 hours later I was haaaaangry again. So, I rectified that immediately with a snack:
You’re wondering if that’s a “bagel thin”? Absolutely not. If I want a bagel, which I often do, I want a bagel with a chewy outside and soft doughy interior. And bagel thins just don’t get the job done. Plus, they have a laundry list of ingredients.
Alvarado St. Bakery hasn’t failed me yet. These are redonkulous.
Do you eat salads for meals?
