Day 9- Add a Salad

Today is the day of the B.A.S. - yes, that's right... The Big-Ass Salad.

Sarah words it a little more genteel-ish.

"From now on, eat one large salad every day. Start by getting yourself a large bowl that you love, if you don't already have one. Then, make a new salad every day for the next 7 days. Discover salads as if for the first time, and make them different each day. In the future, you'll have a lot of ideas for making salads from this one week of experimenting!"

In my BAS, I used Spring Mix greens, a Fuji apple, a carrot, and some "Honey Toast Delites" almond slivers and sunflower seeds.  Well, guess what, my friend - "Honey Toast Delites" have no honey in them.  Just nuts, seeds, oil and sugar.  Go figure.  Anyhow, I topped it off with some blue cheese dressing.

Don't judge me.  I have to give up cheese soon enough, and I'll let it go then.  I'm really not a huge salad dressing fan anyway, so I don't use a lot....unless, of course, we are talking about sweet potato fries, in which case I slather them in blue cheese like there ain't no tomorrow.

I can't say I "loved" my bowl, but steps.  We are rockin' this vegan thing. 

On an unrelated note - "Tropic Thunder" is on FX right now, and I'm laughing like an idiot while I'm typing this post.  If you haven't seen it, go right now to Blockbuster and rent it.  Then go to last year's blog and read my review.

Thus endeth my shameless plug for last year's blog.
