10 min Big Big Salad

Hello everybody,

Its raining today in New York City, so now I am sitting at my computer in the office and drinking some orange spice green tea. Yesterday I had a big craving for a beast salad: so I came up with this delicious salad:

My salad contained:

-  mix spring greens

- half of a cucumber

- 1 tomato

- 1 carrot

- 1 raw beet

- 2 hard boiled eggs

- garlic and herbs goat cheese

Served with fresh squeezed orange juice:

When my fiance came home I made him a salad too, same ingredients as mine, but I added some dill, shrimp and raisin:

It was a glorious salad! Served with Italian whole grain bread and a fresh squeezed juice from celery, carrots and oranges:

I am trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my fiance diet! We have an agreement, no meat this week for him, fish or shrimp occasionally and lots of veggie juice and salads! :)

How do you make your family or friends to eat healthier? I try to make the transition as slow as possible, step by step, informing the health impact that some products have! And letting them make the decision and see the change! :)

    Thank you so much for your kind comment about never feeling bad about myself on my blog…really means a lot…especially in this blogosphere where I eat ice cream and stuff that is all “for shame” ;)

    I’d send you some pimento cheese if I wasn’t worried it would spoil!

    No joke- I had a salad today for lunch that had exactly those ingredients (Mixed greens, 1/2 cucumber, a tomato, a carrot, 2 eggs) Looks like a great combo! ;)

    And I always try to help my friends eat healthier- usually by making healthy, tasty things for them!

    Did you seriously make your fiance a salad and serve it in a heart bowl? Because that’s awesome.

    As for making my friends eat healthier? I have no influence. Which is fine. Live and let live, right? :)

    Yumm lovin those monstah salads!!! Juicing and salads is a perfect way to incorporate some greens into ones diet. I really try to teach others around me about the benefits of incorporating whole grains, and veggies into their diets. I try to cook for my family and teach them that healthy recipes can be darn good too!!

    Ooo and yes Mojo bars are really good, you should try them!

    I’ve found that if people actually try the healthier options they tend to like them and things get a lot easier.
