Confession: I HATE typical salads. You know, the house salads with ice burg lettuce, cold tomatoes, cucumber, and carrots. Seriously, just thinking about it makes me want to barf! How boring!
I always tell people… “if I’m going to eat a salad, it has to be really interesting”, like this one:
Ice burg lettuce, red cabbage, quinoa, flax seeds, sesame seeds, and chopped raw almonds.
This salad beast was amaze. It was everything I was craving and then some, I was really impressed with myself.
Ever since I bought this red cabbage on sale, I have been craving a sweet & nutty salad like this one.
Lately, I have been incorporating a lot more raw foods in my diet. In the colder months I do a really bad job at this so I am so ready for this challenge! I feel like drinking my green smoothies every morning leaves me craving more raw veggies throughout the day. I am NOT getting sick of drinking these yet, I don’t think it’s possible! I thought it would be good for me to drink a green smoothie for breakfast everyday for a while. I’m not sure how long yet, I want to do 30 days but I might only do 21, we’ll see how this goes!
Today, after school, Scott and I are taking a PAID trip to Whole Foods (yes, we live 45 minutes away from the nearest WFs). Basically, a (quite popular) vendor at our FM sells ridiculously good salsa but apparently isn’t a good sales rep. So, Scott told him that he knows how to get his salsa into big businesses like Whole Foods and he was totally up for it. Hopefully Whole Food is interested so my boy can make a nice chunk of the salsa profit! But more importantly, it’s all about helping each other out. One of my favorite things about working at the FM is the vendors we work with. We all look out for each other and help each other when possible, it’s cute. Boy, I wish I could say that about my day job, huh? ;)
So yes, all you southern Michiganders better buy up this salsa if it starts selling at Whole Foods!
Remind me of anything I need to pick up at Whole Foods/ Trader Joe’s!
