You might have guessed by now that I adore salads. I can’t think of another meal that makes me happier.
I adore the taste and even more, I love the way salads make me feel.
For many years, I even ate a salad for breakfast every day. This is a habit I’ve been getting back into lately.
The only reason I don’t eat more salads is time.
While I love cooking, chopping isn’t my favorite activity. When things get busy, I am much more likely to grab a lunch that isn’t going to leave me feeling so good.
Recently I was given the chance to try Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits. I was so excited because I knew that there was no way I wasn’t going to be enjoying a salad every day. There is no better way to enjoy National Nutrition Month than with a wide variety of produce in your diet.
