My salad base that I eat several times a day is
Romaine lettuce
spinach
tomato
cucumber (I like the small kirby ones)
onion

I chop it up small in my big salad bowl
salt, pepper, lemon, oil (canola, olive or flax seed)

Sometimes I might add a diced red or green pepper, a sliced radish, or a little bit of alfalfa.

I love this salad. Its basic, its easy and tastes great.



I know tomatoes are decently high in carbs but the other day I made a salad

Tomato
alfalfa
avocado

diced the tomato and avocado, sprinkeled the alfalfa on top
salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon

it was yummy



Another salad I used to make before I began low carbing
(I am still in induction and dont think I can have it yet)

Fresh string beans (ends snipped off boiled for a few moments and then put in Ice water) cut in half of even left whole
fresh garlic
avocado
pine nuts
red pepper strips
spinach
tomato chunks or wedges
red onion thinly sliced
a little bit of bean sprouts or broccoli sprouts

My usual dressing of salt, pepper, lemon, olive oil

It tastes great
Just need to watch portion sizes
