My Veggie Salad
Alright, for all y'all that find salad as snore worthy as I do, try this instead:
1 small head of Cauliflower (small! or three cups chopped).
3 cups chopped Broccoli
2 medium yellow squash (crookneck)
2 medium zucchini
1 medium bell pepper (green)
1 large red pepper
1 medium yellow pepper
2 medium carrots
Chop the HELL out of the aformentioned veggies... we're talkin' about MORE THAN BITE SIZED small.
I finely chop all ingredients, throw into a HUGE mixing bowl (this seriously makes a TON), stir it up and there you have your veggies.
Salad bores me to tears, so this is what I eat instead.
It makes 14 cups, which turned out to be 90.84 carbs, minus fiber 33.70, divided by 14 = 4 net carbs per CUP.
So you could have four cups of this a day and stil have 4 carbs left over for what's in cheese or whatever else you're eating.
This salad is VERY CRUNCHY and tastes best (well, i guess to me) with homemade italian dressing.
I just whipped up some olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, basil, pepper and salt.
Anyway, if y'all try it, hope ya like it. It's easier to eat a cup of this than it is to count out five million lettuce leaves for 2 carbs. ZZzzzzZZZZZ
