A never-ending journey in making health way more awesome than you'd ever think.
First post is food. Of course.
I made this salad yesterday, and it received a huge amount of Facebook compliments. I am gonna take a page from one of my favorite fitness blogs, Stupid Gym Shit:
Many people believe that in order to eat healthy you have to eat tasteless and boring foods. This may be true if you fall into one of these two categories below.
1. You’re lazy!
2. Your intelligence stops at punching numbers on a microwave (microwavable foods), or dialing numbers on a telephone (take-out).
Yep, that pretty much sums it up. It is NOT hard to look at Clean Eating Magazine, Cook’s Illustrated, or Epicurious and get killer recipe ideas, or just throw together something absolutely beautiful, delicious, and unbelievably healthy.
Epic Tuna Salad:
1 can water-packed tuna, drained
2 cups green leaf lettuce, chopped
1/4 cucumber with peel, sliced thin and then quartered
4 thin slices red onion, separated
1 medium carrot, cut into small sticks (I usually cut 2” sections, then cut in half, then cut that into fourths)
2 Tbsp fat-free all-natural salsa (Green Mountain Gringo is my favorite)
1 ripe mango, peeled and sliced. If you don’t know how to slice a mango, learn.
Pile all the veg together. Top with tuna. Top that with salsa. Ring with mango, or fan the slices out in the corners if you have enough room.
