You’re busy. I’m busy. We’re all busy.
We’re busy doing different things, and what I think is “super important” you might think of as “why would anyone voluntarily waste their time doing that?” but look, the bottom line is, We’re all busy!
And sometimes, you want a salad. But you don’t want to plan a salad. Because planning a salad takes work, and preparation, and which kind of lettuce should I buy, and – oh god I might as well burn my house down and start over somewhere new!
And I don’t want that for you! Don’t burn your house down.
Instead, just follow these 7 easy steps and you’ll have an amazing salad every time.
- Bowl. You need one. Make it a big one. This step is easy.
- Pick your greens. I know I said you didn’t have to pick them, but this is such an easy choice based on personal preference, and as long as your greens aren’t like “fried dough strips” you’re going to be fine.
- Throw in chopped veggies. Onions, peppers, celery, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, they’re all welcome here. It’s a big veggie party and you’re invited.
- Put in something healthy that has carbs (not sugar, god why do you ruin this every time?). I’m talking apples, cranberries, quinoa, chickpeas… that sort of thing.
- Put in some protein. Not a live chicken. Or a whole cow. What is wrong with you? Who has a bowl that big? Stop.
- Put in a source of healthy fats. (Some hard boiled eggs, some cheese, avocado, or other delicious things…).
- Use a salad dressing that has vinegar, olive oil, and other spices. Bonus points if you make it at home!
That’s it! That’s literally it. That’s all the steps to making an amazing salad, every single time.
It will be huge (because you used a big bowl and lots of ingredients), it will be awesome (because I believe in you and your ability to make a good tasting salad), and it will be SO EASY.
That’s it. You ate salad for dinner. Pat yourself on the back (and have some more leftover salad for lunch tomorrow!
