My menu choices are often guided by cravings. Fortunately I have trained my body (brain) to crave mostly healthy foods. When I haven’t had a lot of greens in awhile I get a strong craving for them to the point that I even find ways to work them into breakfast dishes.
The last couple days I’ve had an overwhelming craving for salad. We had salad yesterday for our main meal and I made salad again today.
Today’s salad was a tomato blossom filled with a guacamole salad on a bed of torn spinach, kale and romaine lettuce surrounded by a ring of sliced cucumber.
The guacamole salad consisted of:
- sliced scallions
- minced jalapeño
- lime juice
There was a little bit of the tofu burger patty mixture left, so I cooked it up in little balls to go in the salad.
This salad didn’t even require a dressing. Faye and I split this salad down the middle and it filled us both up.
