Sometimes you hear salad and the last thing that comes to mind is a meal.
Or that it will be filling.
Well, when you put the right things in it, you can’t finish it!
I have been watching my carbs and following the Keto-plan for about 3 1/2 weeks now. I am not hungry, and I am finding myself excited about meal planning and cooking again.
While I am staying away from processed foods, but eating more vegetables and fats, and moderate protein, I had to add pepperoni to this salad.
Blame it on the mozzarella, but those two just go together right?
I have always liked vegetables, but in recent years I have kind of learned to really appreciate them.
Perhaps tolerated would have been my previous relationship, but I have a newfound love and admiration for the amazing variety of vegetables.
It’s about time too since I just turned 47.
But some of us a slow to jump on a bandwagon.
And had mixed feelings about kale for years.
But I can’t deny it, when I run low on my supply of veggies each week, I get a thrill out of stocking up again.
I know, it’s nerdy but I am so excited to be eating healthy and not be hungry or even worse hangry.
So, this super easy salad came together on a rainy day when I wanted pizza but my goals reminded me pizza and I broke up a while ago.
Here is what I used to make one big ass salad that tasted AMAZING!
- 2 cups of organic kale loosely packed
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1/4 cup sliced pepperoni
- 1/2 cup shredded mozarella
- 1/4 cup Olive Garden salad dressing
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- Sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese
Add your ingredients, layer them, mix them and top with cheese, get down with your bad self and enjoy!
Thank you so much for reading friend, as always, may your heart and home be full of everything you love…
