There are salads and then there are SALADS! I had a SALAD! today for lunch and it was amazing. So filling, easy to make, and totally comprised of raw veggies. Even meat-loving Hubs liked it when we had it for dinner on Monday. I thought I'd share it with you all so here's the link. I'm not a vegetarian, but I do try to eat more veggies and raw foods than what is seen as the average American diet. Recently I have seen the following movies that have influenced my food choices:
"Food Inc." really got me with the ick-factor of how most meat is processed. It was after watching this movie that Jeff and I made a commitment to purchase organic meat. Which also means we just haven't eaten much meat since then because it is more expensive. I can't say we miss it all that much.
We just watched this one a few nights ago (Net Flicks has opened up a whole new world!) and it was good, if not a little too dogmatic for me. I really enjoyed the facts that were presented, but I felt like sometime of the speakers wanted everyone to eat completely vegan and raw food diets. Which, honestly, doesn't seem very practical or fun. But it did open up my eyes to the possibilities of raw foods!
So, dear readers, your thoughts? What do you eat to stay healthy? What information has influenced your diet?
