“EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK” SUPERFOOD SALAD

One of the things I am trying this month is having a Superfood Salad for dinner most nights of the week. And let me tell you – salads don’t have to be boring.

A lot of days I just don’t feel like having anything come dinner time so in the spirit of my Intuitive Eating challenge and setting myself up for success – I am going to have my first meal of the day be my largest meal (like reverse timed supper) and then if I get to the end of the day and don’t feel well or like eating it isn’t as big of a deal.

But to also try and set myself up for success – I am going to plan, and prep for, having a Superfood Salad + protein + whole grain.

I will pick a protein + grain and prep it at lunch time when I have more energy and less pain and then combine anything I want from the ingredients on hand and preprepped to make things so much simpler…
