For me, this is the hardest resolution of all to talk about. There are so many ways to eat healthier. Gluten free. Sugar free. White bread free, to name just a few. The Mr. probably says it best, though neither of us abide by this advise. “Eat less and move more.” Also drink lots and lots of water. The colder, the better.
Many years ago I read a article about Biosphere 2, a self-contained human terrarium near Tucson, Arizona. The experiment's implications for colonizing desert terrains and maybe in the long run Mars was amazing, but what caught my attention was the salad they made from foods grown in the terrarium, which they claimed would prolong life. I don't know if that's true, and I don't remember all the ingredients of the original salad, but we ate it for months after. Today we bought a package of bagged salad reminding me of that yummy delight.
Shred cucumber and carrots. Add chopped cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Kale, Brussels sprouts, chicory. Mix in dried cranberries or raisins, roasted pumpkin seeds and a dash of poppyseed dressing. Serve and enjoy.
Do you have a favorite recipe that makes you look at your diet in a different way? The daughter does the cooking at my house, but I'll bet I can talk her into trying every recipe you suggest. And don't forget to eat less, move more and drink lots of water.
