Will you join me in this challenge for the entire month of June?
A salad every day!
The challenge has been issued by Angela Liddon from OhSheGlows.com
Some of the salads I have had so far (I got a few days head start). The Detox Salad by Angela Liddon. (Day 3 & 4/May 31st and June 1st)
A salad from the Souper Salad! restaurant. (Day 2/May 30th)
And Layered Salad with Orange-Ginger Dressing. (Day 1/May 29th)
I will be posting pictures of my salads and if I try some really good new ones, I will post the recipes, too.
And just like Angela Liddon, of course I am not going to live entirely on salads, so I hope to post the recipes that we are eating this summer, too.
We've been doing home-made nondairy ice cream, some super-awesome breakfast recipes, Monsta! Cookies from Dreena Burton (with dramatically reduced oil), etc.
All of the salads above were oil-free. I have really vamped up my efforts in either seriously reducing our usage of oils, or eliminating it altogether. It has been the last refined food I have really been holding on to. Once you make the effort, cross that line into oil-free land, it's not so hard as it seems. This has been the biggest transition item for me. But, I hope to show you how I have been doing it.
So, back to June Salad Challenge! Will you join me?
How do you participate?
Leave a comment saying, "I'm in!"
Then blog, tweet, or facebook your salads, or pictures of your salads.
I hope you participate!
So far for me it has changed the way I eat in just the last week. (Yes, even MUAH can eat too few veggies!!)
So fill up that crisper, and get excited to try some new salads!
It's not too late today to eat that salad for dinner. You can look at Angela Liddon's site for some good starter salad recipes, or just grab whatever is already in your crisper, chop it up, throw it together, drizzle with lemon, maple syrup or balsamic vinegar, and eat up!
