Here’s the deal. I have been doing my best to eat better, save some money and try to make all of my Crossfit efforts count. So this is what I have been doing. I cut the sugar. I cut eating wheat, grains, booze, soda and, you know, all the good stuff.
But you want to know something? It has been much easier than I would have thought. The only thing I truly miss is a little something sweet. So I sometimes indulge with a small bite of something, small being the big word. So what I have been doing is making food I really want to eat. So tonight I made a really good, really simple, really chopped salad with sausage and kale soup.
Here is the ingredients for the salad. I am not going to give you the amounts for anything because it can be as much or as little of each ingredient as you like.
Cucumber, cut into chunks
Celery, cut thinly
Brussel Sprouts sliced very thin (think coleslaw)
Green onions, chopped
Butternut Squash, peeled, seeded, med diced and roasted in a 350 degree oven until soft. Let cool
Green Grapes, cut in half
Romain Lettuce, chopped fine
Combine all of this in a large enough bowl and toss. Add the following dressing just before service
Dressed with Honey Mustard dressing
1 tablespoon mustard, your choice
1 tablespoon honey
1 part white vinegar or your choice
3 parts EVOO
Salt to taste
I can tell you straight up. It is freaking good. I hope that you enjoy this.
Remember what our founding fathers said, “We the People, in order to form a more perfect salad…”
