There are few things you can do to impact your life more powerfully, profoundly, and permanently than changing your diet. Every morsel of food that enters your mouth has a direct impact on your body, mind, and spirit.
The idea of eating in appeals to me — a great deal. I was surfing the web today and came across this page. I am not supporting any cause here — except for eating IN instead of eating out.
My family spends a good share of our monthly budget on restaurant meals. When you add up all the cash spent and debit card transactions, it’s pretty scary!
Again, I don’t know anything about Dr. Hyman, but I love the idea of eating in. My family is going to start a new habit where we PLAN our meals and skip the pricey eating out routine. It’s crazy!
Salads are a big part of my weekly food plan. And, thankfully, there are many variations on a theme.
The Taco Salad is a great example. While my family is stuffing taco shells and tortillas with taco-seasoned meat, I’m using it as a topping for a whopping big salad. The salad shown above is a big one. It’s certainly enough food for two.
Although you probably can’t tell from the photo, the salad bowl is much larger than the standard salad or soup bowl that comes with your run-of-the-mill dinner ware. I took a big liking to the salad bowls they use at Paradise Bakery and Cafe. The bowls are big enough that you can actually ‘toss’ your salad right in the serving bowl. A smart idea.
Rinsing your fruit and vegetables prior to cooking or eating them may not be enough. Many times, produce companies add a coating of food-grade wax to vegetables to help preserve freshness.
The wax also makes them look nice in the produce section of your grocery store.
Wax on. Wax off.
I don’t care if it’s food grade or not. It’s nasty. And I am not going to eat it.
