I'm not a salad person. I'm not really a person that eats many green things at all. I'll dapple in the celery and even canned peas, but that's about where it stops. When we went to Mexico, I was taught the phrase “Nada verde” – Nothing green…just in case I needed to use it!
But As my previous posts have talked about my desire for a change in my eating habits, I am trying to give salad a few more tries.
There's a big salad bar in my building. I went there last week with my coworker. This is what I got.
Seemed like a good idea. I added all sorts of things I knew I liked: carrots, olives, turkey, ham, bacon bits…I just didn't really like them together. My other big problem is I don't like dressing. At all. And I really don't like them on lettuce. But dressing seems to be the part that everyone likes so much. (That is just bizarre to me!)
I am going to give it another go today. I am going to get some soup to go with it, too. But I figure the more I try it, I am eventually going to like it. Or at least tolerate it as a healthier option for lunch than Ramen Noodles and Easy Mac!
I also decided yesterday to give up caffeine. I don't need it. I just think I do. So I decided to stop drinking it along with all these other changes I am making. Wow…I think I might be growing up!
