I don’t feel like cooking every night. It is on occasion where I have to be my own cheerleader when it comes to encouraging myself to make something to eat that is wholesome and healthy. As I am sure you all can relate. It is only after the delicious meal that we are appreciative of actually taking the time to nourish ourselves and this is the reward, of course as well is the meal that we get to enjoy. This is another reason why I totally like to keep things simple. Simple is easy, beautiful and usually pretty tasty. This salad I whipped up the tonight and really enjoyed its simplicity and how tasty it was. I was tired and it did the trick, energizing and was so simple to prepare.
1 Head of Lettuce of Choice ( I used fresh red leaf lettuce)
1 Small Handful of Crumbled Gorgonzola (this can of course be opted out for a dairy free delight)
1/2 Cup Fresh Organic Garden Peas
4 Garlic Stuffed Green Olives
1/4 Whole Organic Cucumber
1 Small Summer Squash
5 Stalks Asparagus
In a hot pan with olive oil, I added sliced summer squash and asparagus before I added them to the rest of the salad. I hand ripped the lettuce and then added on top the olives sliced, cucumber, cheese and then lightly sprinkled the salad with olive oil, and white wine vinegar. See as I said, so easy.
Of course there are so many combinations of healthy options, just as there are in life! What is your combo? What are the things in your life that combine together to make your life living? Mine are art, people, yoga, food, play and creating challenges!
