I eat a huge salad almost every day. I know, this sounds boring and uninspiring, but it doesn’t have to be, as I’m about to show you with this salad making “guide”. Why?
- In the event you are bored with your current lunch.
- Or need some new mix and match salad ideas. With unlimited combinations.
- You find yourself unsatisfied and still hungry after you’ve eaten a salad.(See fat and protein options below! You must include some satisfaction factor in your bowl, so you aren’t left feeling snackey in the late afternoon.)
- Salads are a great way to eat loads of veggies at once. And you need to eat veggies so…
- You’ve been buying heavily processed dressing and wishing you had an easy and delicious balsamic dressing recipe. (Included at the end. You’re welcome)
