Not all Salads are created equal……

Not all Salads are created equal.

Funny we think if we start our meal with a salad we can eat whatever we want and all is forgiven. There’s a salad on every menu and we believe they are always our best choice. We know we need to get our fruits and our veggies but we live in a world that we can’t eat anything that is just natural. We have to eat out fruits and vegetables with dip, peanut butter, dressing, butter, syrups. Some of us have no idea what an apple actually tastes like.

Sad but true. But where we go the most wrong is in the salad department. I was at Mad Greens a few weeks ago it was so busy and lunch time. I laughed as I watched so many men (not criticizing just an observation) getting great big salads and then adding every cheese, meat, nut and chip available but they were able to go home that night and say I had a salad at lunch. I was at a buffet with my husband not too long ago and he came back to the table with a big grin because he had all these salads on his plate. Crab salad, potato salad, macaroni salad, jello salad, and about a cup of lettuce. So proud of himself, his wife rolling her eyes.
