B@S = Big Ass Salad

August 27th, 2011 at 10:35 am

I've been eating a lot of Big Ass Salads the last few weeks for lunch. I start with a homemade dressing. The base is salt and pepper and balsalmic vingegar. Then I add olive oil or sunflower oil or mayonaisse depending on what I feel like that day. I add a large handful of spinach and about 4 cups of romaine.

Next come the veggies and egg. I usually add a hard-boiled egg, onion and tomatoes. I may add celery and/or radishes if I have them.

Meat can be any of the following, ham, pepperoni, leftover roast chicken breast, turkey deli meat, tuna, ground beef, or shrimp sauteed in butter.

Finally I might add some slivered almonds, walnuts or sunflower seeds. Makes a huge salad and very tasty and filling, I don't want to eat again for several hours.

Today I woke up late so only eating 2 meals. For dinner I'll have one of the steaks I got yesterday and green beans with salsa, a small salad and watermelon for dessert. Sounds good to me. Smile

I finished reading the library book Promises Revealed by Sarah McCarthy. Romance - very good.

    Very much like the paleo diet. I joke that its the meat and leaves diet, but I've lost about 5 lbs in the last two weeks on it.

    baselle - I'm doing a combo paleo/low carb since April and have lost 20 lbs, plus even better all my health indicators are better too. blood glucose, blood pressure and when I get my lab results next week expecting to see good things for my cholesterol/trigs. Lots of other nice things with this way of eating too. Better sleep at night, lost inches, no headaches, no heartburn, just general feeling good.
