If you would have told me six months ago I’d be eating salads for lunch, and LOVING it, I would have called you crazy.
Prior to my diagnosis, I hated salad. Rabbit food. Filler. Just gimme the main course!
But here I am, presently chomping down on my little, simple salad and just so overwhelmed with flavor that I needed to blog about it!
Part of my dealing with Endometriosis was altering my diet and getting healthier. My body is running at less-than-optimal performance because of this stupid disease. So I need to do everything I can to recharge and revitalize my body, from the inside out. Part of that proclamation is SALAD!
I prep my salads before heading to work: a pre-mixed leafy green mix from the store, throw in some cherry tomatoes, wrap a cucumber and a hard boiled egg up in a paper towel and toss that in the bowl, throw some sunflower seeds in a baggy and throw that in the bowl, and add some dressing (either balsamic vinaigrette or poppy seed dressing) into a little lidded-cup and toss that in the bowl. As soon as lunch comes around, I cut it all up, mix it all together, and savor the flavor!
Not only is it uber-healthy for me, but I feel good (mentally and physically) knowing I’m doing one small thing to help my body stay in fit condition.
AND I’m saving money! $4 for pre-cut leafy greens; $3 for tomatoes; $1 for the cucumber, $1 for the seeds, and $3 for a dozen eggs. $12 feeds me for a week! Sure beats picking up lunch every day!
Anyway, I ramble. I was just so excited that this retarded diagnosis has truly made me healthier and wiser! 🙂 So, the silver lining!!
I hope this finds you well today.
