After eating a few meals filled with carbs and grain, I am actually CRAVING salad! If you had asked me 3 years ago what my favorite meals were, my home made pizza or spaghetti would have both been in the top 5, and a salad would not have even been considered. But my tastes have sure changed.
I was thinking about what to take out of the freezer this morning for supper, and decided that what I MOST wanted was a good salad. Baby spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, onions, almond slices, sun dried tomatoes, a bit of olive oil, some lemon juice and to make it perfect some chicken or steak cut up and mixed in.
I am glad I fixed a few “special” meals for my son last week. He loved the pizza, the burgers, and crescent roles for breakfast and there is no reason a kid has to be completely deprived of that type of thing. But I can’t imagine going back to a diet like that long term.
I guess this is “proof” that although eating a more healthy diet can be hard at first, it grows on you.
