people make fun of my giant salads.

I've been eating two dinner plate sizes piled high with dark green spinach/spring mix or romaine with tomatoes cucumbers, and olives, with some dressing, and sometimes kidney beans or chickpeas per meal. I actually crave it when I'm hungry! If someone comments at the enormity of your salad, take it with pride, the benefits of eating greens increase with each comment.

Also, the secret to eating copious amounts of salads without a blender and fruit, is to find a dressing you like and stick with it, or rotate between a few favourites, AND don't forget toppings.

-onions: red, white, green
-sundried tomatoes
-sweet potato
-almonds, cashews, pistachios, etc.
-dried fruit: crans, apricots, etc.
-dehydrated vegetables
-dehydrated flax crackers
-fruits: strawberries, apple slices
-other lightly steamed vegetables.

What have you been eating too much of lately, good or bad?
