The Ultimate Personal Salad and Eating It All!

So when I say ultimate I mean exactly that a huge salad with as much stuff that will fit inside. My personal salads look like they should be shared, but I don't share them, because that is considered my meal. It may take me 45 minutes or so to eat it, the chewing and  just enjoying all the flavors.  why rush thru all that tasty goodness.  Too many of us rush thru meals inhaling them, not tasting anything, why pay for something and not enjoy it to the fullest. The flavors are satisfying and scrumptiously delicious. Slow down and enjoy! :)

It is said to chew your food 100 times before you swallow, I know it sounds ridiculous, but really will help with the ease of digestion.  Just start with 25 chews per bite, even if you do 10, it's better than 3 chews and gulping it down. :)

Okay, enough of that, I know, I know you only came here for the salad.

So here it is (just one of the many I like):
     1 head of lettuce ( I prefer romaine) and yes the whole head of lettuce, not just a few leaves
     couple of handfuls of spinach leaves
     1-2 apples chopped up in the size you prefer
     1 orange
     1-2 cups of raisins
     1 avocado ( love those avocados)
     1/2 cup crumbled pecans
     onion slices (optional)
     sunflower seeds sprinkled on top
     sprouts of your choice (such as alfalfa)
*I don't use salad dressing, I just enjoy the flavors of all this wonderous food God has made.
Experiment with what you like and throw it in a salad, have fun with your food!
