Bryan shared a link to this NYT article about "The 11 Best Foods You Aren't Eating," and, since I was headed out the door to the grocery, I added some of them to my list, and to tonight's dinner salad.
Current favorite salad - spinach, broccoli, beets, sweet apples and/or pineapple chunks, and pumpkin seeds, with a dollop of good bleu cheese dressing, sufficient to bind all the chopped ingredients together. Full of vitamins and antioxidants - and really delish.
I'm obsessed with the idea of a perfect salad - that perfect blend of a powerful punch of mega-nutrition and truly enjoyable to eat - and my ideal evolves with time. I used to drop tuna or chicken chunks in, then for awhile I was tofu crazy, and now I leave the protein out of it, since I get that from my shakes instead. Yummm.
Also tried to find canned pumpkin (nowhere to be found, either at Jewel or Edgewater Produce), and grabbed a bag of frozen blueberries while I was at it. Also on the list was Swiss chard, which sounded too complicated (sautee? naw) and sardines, which Bryan (and my cats) love, and which I will never touch with a ten-foot pole. I know, a gripping and fascinating blog post, huh?
