The last few days I have been going out to eat. I have ended up at places that serve mostly burgers, sandwiches and fried food. They also had several salads to choose from. I am finding that I am defaulting to a burger with no bun and fries. After last night, I thought to myself, with all of the changes I have made eating gluten free in the last month. And, all of chances I am taking with trying new foods. Is it possible for salad and I to coexist……or even be in a committed relationship?
Instead of taking leftover chicken wings to work for lunch, is it possible for me to make a fresh, healthy salad the night before? In the past, I would have answered, Absolutely Not! But, in the last few months I have tried and liked so many new vegetables, that I really think it is possible.
Why am I trying to cut gluten out of my diet, if I am just going to replace it with hamburgers and chicken wings? Seems a bit ridiculous when I actually think about.
So, here is my declaration to the world. Beginning now, I am going to give salads a chance. I know that the options are unlimited, so there is no way I am going to fail!
If you are out to eat with me, do me a favor when I say I am going to order a burger sans bun. Give me tap and ask me if that is really my best option! Thanx in advance!!
