I’ve been eating a lot of salads lately at some of my favorite restaurants, and then it finally hit me, why don’t I just start making my own? So I took off to the grocery store and found pretty much everything I needed to make a “Caveman Salad” It was easy, and this thing is packed with good stuff, and not one single processed carb. Here is the recipe if you’d like to make your own. I mixed it all in a big bowl and along with a side meat, it looks like it’ll be enough to last for 3 meals. I still have a ton of raw ingredients left to make a whole lot more as well, so all in all it is much more economical to make them yourself.

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Spinach
  • 1 chopped squash
  • 1 chopped cucumber
  • sliced mushrooms
  • bellpepper
  • broccoli
  • tomato
  • 1/2 large avocado
  • almonds
  • sunflower seeds
  • citrus fruit ( i used a tangelo)
  • raisins

I did add some Newman’s olive oil and vinegar dressing for a little flavor, but it is all natural and minimally processed. For dinner, I didn’t have any fresh meat to use, so I threw a can of tuna in there. For lunch, I had a nice salmon fillet sitting in the fridge at work. I put it in the toaster oven for about 3 minute, just long enough to cook the outside. The inside? RAW! No spices to mask the rawness this time, i ate like it was. It wasn’t “delicious”, but it wasn’t bad either. I think some basil or rosemary would spice it up nicely next time. There’s so many different greens, veggies, and seeds/nuts out there that the possibilities are endless for salads. If you are going to eat a lot of salads, it’s actually best to change up the ingredients for better variety in nutrients. I just came up with my list because everything was readily available and tasty, especially the fruit in the salad! Bon apetit!
