I have some weird “quirks” that I’ve never really shared on my YouTube channel before. And, it’s not even really because I’m embarrassed by them. The topic has just not really ever come up. So, I thought I’d start with one today!
I HATE lettuce.
Ok ok I know hate is a strong word. But, I can definitely say it’s appropriate in this situation. A situation where if even the smallest bit of lettuce gets in my mouth I gag… or even vomit. No joke. And everyone always says “but, lettuce doesn’t have a taste.” I beg to differ. For example:
I’m eating a subway sandwich. I like to put tomatoes, pickles and olives on it. If even one tiny piece of shredded lettuce gets into my sub without me knowing, and I’m talking tiny, my mouth will detect it and I’ll have to spit it out. So, if lettuce has no taste how are my taste buds picking up on it?! Hmph… so there.
Anyways, back to the main reason of this post, my favourite salad! If you are familiar with weight watchers you’ll know that fruits and veggies are zero points. Therefore, I tend to eat lots to keep myself full. A salad is a great addition to lunch time because it adds bulk without using all my points. I do, however, think a salad of all veggies is rather boring. So, mine has a few extras
I also like to prepare a super large salad for the week so it’s ready to go in the fridge. That way I don’t have to chop everything up every time I want a salad.
Allison’s No Lettuce Yummy Salad:
- 3 English Cucumbers – peeled and cut into chunks
- 3 Tubs of Cherry Tomatoes (or regular tomatoes) – cut in half
- 1/2 Cup of Soy nuts – I like a crunch in my salad, and soy nuts are pretty low points
- 3 oz light cheddar – cut in tiny chunks
- 5 tbsp of a light dressing – I like sun-dried tomato
- Splash of white vinegar – for extra tang, and to stretch out the dressing
- Salt and Pepper to taste
I combine all ingredients into one or two large storage containers and shake shake shake. Then it’s ready in my fridge for whenever I need it!
I usually end up eating one large bowl of salad a day, and at that rate the prepared amount lasts all week. Depending on how large the bowl is, the points plus value is 2 or 3. Pretty awesome!! And, very satisfying
