I recently stumbled across an amazing cooking blog, stonesoup, thanks to a guest post author Jules Clancy did on ZenHabits recently. One of her posts is about 20 quick and delicious salads you can make for a satisfying meal. I recently tried her butter bean salad recipe and it was delicious, filling, and completely healthy. I highly recommend you try making it for yourself.
Jules’ post was incredibly well-timed, as salads are going to become an important part of my life from now on. My next project from her post will be the chickpea and parmesan salad. I can’t wait to try it.
Soon I’ll write a post about my progress in the book Food Matters, and talk about the suggestions I’ve started implementing in my lifestyle that have made a huge difference in my ability to eat fresh, non-processed food throughout the day. On the book’s recommendation, I just ordered a salad spinner that will allow me to keep freshly spun lettuce in my fridge so I can whip up a quick salad at a moment’s notice.

Oooh, that looks really good. I need to incorporate more salads into my life.

Thanks, Kara! It’s kind of crazy how easy these recipes make salads look. I’ve been eating so much more greens than I did before as a result and it’s a great addition to my eating habits.

Definitely getting on the salad spinner wagon when I can. 🙂 Counting the days until the kitchen can be used!
