Salads are the staple of this diet.  But don’t worry, if you’re a little sick of eating them, I’ve got a few recommendations to get you through.

  • Blend your salads.  That probably sounds a little icky at first glance.  But there are quite a few ways to make a delicious green drink smoothie.  Use at least 2 handfuls of kale and spinach.  Add shredded carrot, cucumber, 1/2 banana, a few nuts, and almond or soy milk.  Sweeten with stevia or 2 dates.  You can play with this mix, throwing in some berries, or adding other veggies.  It’s a great way to get your greens in when you can’t think about chewing down another salad.
  • Make a veggie dip platter.  HUMMUS RECIPES are THE BEST when you’re on Eat to Live and eating a pound of veggies is definitely doable when you’ve got a great dip.  Slice up at entire cucumber, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, anything that you can think of to dip.
  • Experiment with DRESSINGS.  If you hate salads, your taste buds may still be acclimating.  KEEEEEP GOOOOOING.  I promise this will get easier.  Test out some different recipes and find at least one or two salad dressings or dips that you love.  Prep them and keep them in the fridge at ALL TIMES.  Get my favorite nutritarian salad dressing HERE!
