When was the last time you have eaten a plate of salad? Was it yesterday or a few weeks ago?
Well, I eat salad almost everyday and I think if my doctor will take a laboratory test these days, he would advice me to eat meat again because he can only see green in my lab test😁 My doctor in Ireland had told me once to eat meat. No, I am not a vegetarian. I also eat meat but not everyday. Actually I seldom missed meat but I missed veggies when my laziness hit me to prepare something that costs my time. As you might have noticed, the food that I published at Blogjob contained mostly of vegetables and fruits. I know, I know! Meat is good against iron deficiency but there are lots of veggies with loads of iron too.
Yesterday, I was so tired from work and so I just put veggies and fruits on my plate and drizzled some olive oil, gherkins pickle water and balsamico vinegar in it. Spiced it with salt and pepper and that was it. As you can see in the photo, it was plenty for one person but I was able to consume it. In an hour of chewing 😀.
Here´s what I put on my plate:
- A handful of washed rucola
- 1 ripe tomato, cut into cubes
- 1 pineapple ring from a can, sliced
- 6 strawberries, sliced into quarters
- 1 small meatball, cut in small pieces
- 1 leaf of chinese cabbage, sliced thinly
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon gherkin pickles water
- 1 teaspoon balsamico vinegar
- Salt and white pepper powder to taste
I just arranged every fruits, vegetables and the small portion of meat on the plate. Remember, our eyes “eat” as well. I love my food colourful and so that was the way it looked on my plate.
Don´t you think my salad photo is inviting to you? Well, it was to me. As I have said, I eat salad everyday but it doesn´t look the same. It´s not boring either as the ingredients are not the same. It really depends what I have in the fridge.
