i don't have great eating habits. i only eat once a day usually, dinner, really late. and then (strangely) i have a 'breakfast drink' (up&go in australia, just a 250ml flavoured milk drink with fibre and protein) just before bed. so i guess i do eat two meals a day, but both at night?|
i'm also quite broke, and single, and just don't care enough so often my dinner meal ends up being something processed. not enough fresh stuff, you know?
i really get into big chunky salads though, and i really want to eat better (not more often, but healthier, fresher food).
so lately i've been having a massive plate of baby spinach, and throwing stuff on that. crumbled blue cheese (the cheap stuff, but still yum!) dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, red onion, the other night i had some chicken, tonight i'm having potato and a poached egg in there, then drizzling it all in balsamic vinegar and a teeeeny bit of fat free caesar.
i was thinking that i might try this for a while, a big fresh salad every night with some protein on it. but still money is an issue so i was wondering what you might suggest. i thought i could get a bunch of staples:
fat free caesar
semi dried tomato
and then just a couple times a week buy some fresh stuff:
baby spinach leaves
and each night have a little bit different salad.
what would you suggest i add to the staple (non-fresh) list?
i guess with this stuff i can add to the collection over time?
what would you suggest i try in the fresh list?
do you have a yum go-to salad that you think i should give a whirl?
(i HATE carrots and capsicum!)
