Ok, I don't really love salad. But I could love salad if it's the right salad. And the right salad has to have the right ingredients. My new goal, in my new 9 week push (9 weeks left of the school year - I start summer feeling better than EVER!), is to have salad everyday. But not just any salad. Amazing salad. Salad that makes people say, "Ooooooh that looks good." Or, "Wow, is that a salad?"
Last week, RhodeyGirl talked about the I Love Salad challenge, and I committed to eating amazing salad everyday this week and this was today's salad. Ingredients:
Whole Wheat Cousous dressed with lemon and a little bit of garlic and olive oil
Roasted sweet potatoes
Roasted butternut squash
It was epic.
And almost everyone in the room asked me what it was and one person even asked for the recipe. Ha!
Day One of I Love Salad challenge complete and mission accomplished. Whoohooo!
