This Salad was a bit of a Mish Mash of things and it turned out pretty tasty!
The Lettuce you see here is Petite Oak. I used a whole head of it for this LARGE Salad. I read up on this lettuce and noticed that it averages over a gram of protein per serving.
I also added 2 good sized carrots, 1/4 of a pickle, and about 10 raw Almonds. This was my Dinner in addition to leftover Chia Seed Crackers and Raw Vegan Cheese Dip.
I made another dressing last night for this LARGE Salad. I think I will call it Tomato Tahini but it's much more than that. Here's what's in this Raw Vegan Salad Dressing...
4 Roma Tomatoes
1/3 C Tahini
2 T Braggs Liquid Aminos
2 Lemon Juice
2 Mini Sweet Red Bell Peppers
Cayenne to taste
It was YUMMY! I'm looking forward to a different Salad and Salad Dressing tonight, too!
This morning I didn't make a Green Smoothie and I must say I missed it!
Last night I didn't get enough sleep due to major Thunderstorms in our area. The thunder was cracking from 12:30am to after 9am. I probably only got about a half hour of sleep. Considering that - I'm actually not feeling too bad today!
Today I have consumed 4 Mandarin Oranges, 1 Pink Alice Apple, and over a cup of small kale leaves from our container garden. I massaged the Kale Leaves in (fresh squeezed) Tomato Juice and Spices. It was just what I was hungry for!
I found a Pink Alice Apple at one of my local stores the other day and tried it today for the first! I must say I am a fan! It sort of smells like WINE when you first cut it...very pleasant. Here's a little bit more info about this kind of apple!
- Description: This new and distinct apple variety possesses several unique and desirable characteristics such as having a distinct pink stripe over a creamy-yellow background, which distinguishes it from other known varieties. The background color deepens to an orange-yellow after harvest. Lady Alice possesses a distinctive taste and its dense flesh is sweet with a hint of tartness. The shape of the Lady Alice is round and somewhat broad with a shallow, slightly open calyx.
- Parentage: The Lady Alice apple was discovered as a chance seedling in Washington State and is therefore a *Washington Original*.
- Availability: Available February through May or while supplies last.
- Usage: It is slow to brown after cutting which makes it excellent for eating fresh, cutting into salads or served on fruit trays. Additionally, the dense flesh holds its texture when baking. Lady Alice is an excellent all-purpose apple.
