Fresh veggies. Arch nemesis. Not because I don’t like fresh veggies, I’m in love with them. This time of year…..that’s my arch nemesis….there’s not a lot of good options for fresh veggies, making that old ‘healthy lifestyle’ a bit more difficult.
Here’s my answer….super salad!!!!
So, you might ding me because it’s over your budget, but here’s my claim….it doesn’t happen very often, it’s a treat. It’s also very sad that fresh salad is a ‘treat’ but hey, it’s winter….
I take advantage of the grocery store fresh bar to peruse what looks fresh and delish. I also spring for some olives and feta, among other pickled delights. A small portion here and there is a welcome change and while you might think I’m paying out the nose for this, the containers last for days, being used for several meals. I think that if I bought all of these ingredients to put together, the cost would be far more considering how much I actually eat (and PIC).
- 1 bunch lettue, I used Boston bib
- 1 c. fresh spinach
- Your choice of fresh items from grocery store
- A little imagination for what tastes good together
