What I Ate For Lunch

26 May 2013


  • large handful baby spinach
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • small handful alfalfa sprouts
  • small handful mixed frozen berries
  • homemade guacamole
  • shredded chicken (no real quantity, it was what I had left from this post)

  1. Take 1/2 an avocado, juice of 1 lime, small handful of cilantro (corriander). Mix all into a bowl, using a spoon or fork to mash the avocado until it’s fully mixed. Add a dash of Himalayan pink sea salt (if desired) and fresh cracked pepper. (serves 1).

The dressing for this was the same as my other post, so all in all this was a super simple and totally delicious salad. I really recommend taking pictures of your food for two reasons. 1: It makes you become creative and make your food look delicious and 2: You will slow down prior to eating it, which means your don’t shovel it in your mouth all at once. Both of these will make you start appreciating the food you create and learning what colors and textures go together.
