What’s the best way to ensure you’ll reach for the salad for lunch? Cut up your weekly ration of veggies ahead of time. Yeah, it seems like a no-brainer, but unless you honestly take the half hour over the weekend & chop up the lettuce & etc ahead of time, you might find yourself reaching for something seemingly quicker to make.
Also – don’t forget that you don’t need lettuce just to make an amazing big ass salad! Try just a big bowl of your favorite vegetables. Back when asparagus was in season, I bought a whole bunch, but wasn’t eating it fast enough. After I came upon this post from Elena, I was inspired to make my own version with whatever veggies I had in the fridge. I combined asparagus with tomatoes, avocado, bacon, carrots… you get the idea. ‘Twas quite tasty!
