In case you missed it, I’ve challenged myself to eat a salad a day for the month of May. Here are the ones I ate this past week.
But we’re just going to glaze right past last Sunday, because unless pho counts as salad, I didn’t eat one.
I think I forgot to mention this, but Joel wanted to take on the salad a day challenge – but only if we could have taco salads. One week in, we finally made them. Romaine, ground beef, olives, beans (I used kidney, he had pinto) tomatoes, avocado.
Ham steaks and pasta salad. Mine had Tinkyada rice pasta, steamed zucchini and green beans, chopped tomatoes, and was smothered in pesto.
We made these enormous green salads. A mixture of romaine and spinach with chicken, chopped apple, apple chips, and walnuts, and was dressed with basil oil and balsamic vinegar. I forgot to add it before I took this picture, but I had some goat cheese on mine as well.
Thursday, May 10 – No pictures, but I had some leftover pasta salad for lunch and a little three bean salad, which you’ll see in the next two pictures, as a snack before dinner.
We had a barbecue at work, which I never feel comfortable partaking in because of the huge tubs of hamburger buns and cookies. I used to feel a little resentful about this, but in the past couple of years, my tactic has been to bring something that I’m really excited about eating instead. This time I brought my own barbecue food – hot dogs, carrot and celery sticks, and three bean salad (garbanzo, kidney, and green beans, dressed with apple cider vinegar, olive oil and stevia.) I ate it with the only barbecue food I felt safe eating – a bag of Lays potato chips.
More barbecue food! A hot dog swimming in ketchup, more three bean salad, and a Caesar salad. Up until last month, it had been years since I’ve had Caesar salad, and I’m not sure why – it’s questionable at restaurants because of croutons, but otherwise, gluten-free and is one of my favorite salads.
