It has been ages since I made myself a salad. I have been very naughty lately, eating out instead of prepping my own lunch. Tsk!
I blame this on Champ's awesome chee yoke fun. Behold my latest transgression, lunch last Friday.
Gah! So anyway, I tried to make up for it by eating somewhat healthy on Friday evening.
All this unhealthy stuff has got to stop because I have been resorting to wearing my fat pants again. Yup, the ones with the stretchy waistband (which is great to wear during makan sessions heh...heh...).
So I told myself that I would fix me a big salad on Sunday to atone for all my gastronomic sins.
There's all sorts of vegetables in there - broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, onion, chickpeas and a new found vegetable - kale, inspired by the kale salad that my partner had at Goodness Greens during one of our visits.
|My partner's favorite at Goodness Greens.|
Kale is quite tough so apparently, you need to massage it first to soften the leaves or else you will end up chewing like a cow.
That happened to me recently when I tapau salad from Salad Atelier and chose kale as my base. Adoi! So chewy that after my meal, I took some probiotics because I reckon the bacteria would love it and thrive hee..hee...hee...
For the salad dressing, I used the one I made here which so far, is my favorite. Here's to more salads from now on!
