Is that even possible or REAL?
Sure why not? I mean, who really makes the rules and aren’t some meant to be bent?
Have you ever had a day when you pack a salad for lunch and the salad sounds good? Well it sounds good when you pack it, but as the day goes on it sounds less appealing? esp the spinach part. I mean, a big pile of veggies and beans is still a salad right?
Today is one of those days for me.
Sitting in the fridge is a wonderful green smoothie. Ingredients include: SPINACH, blueberries, strawberries and a banana. Part of it was my breakfast and the rest will be my snack later. So when lunch rolled around, I was planning on eating a salad. (I am really working on fueling my body with the nutrients it needs.) I piled a large stack of veggies from our cafeteria on a plate and sat down at my desk and took a bite before adding the spinach.
In the words of a great co-worker, it tasted good, really, really good.
I tore up my spinach and started to mix it in.
Took a bit.
Decided– I liked my salad without the spinach. I did not even want dressing either.
Started picking out the lettuce.
Took another bite… better.
Removed 90% of the spinach… even better.
My spinach sat in a pile… discarded. I may return to it later– or maybe I will drink my smoothie and call it good!
So yes, today I ate a salad minus one key ingredient. Sometimes you just have to go with how your body is feeling and what sounds good.
Some days, a salad minus the spinach is better. Do you ever have days that a salad minus the spinach or lettuce tastes better?
I challenge you to enjoy the day and be ready to think out of the box when it comes to your food. Make a salad minus the lettuce. Forget a key ingredient and see where life takes you!
