The phrase Eating Only Salads For A Year may sound like torture, but it can actually be really fun! I’ll take you through my process of creating the perfect salad to see how much variety there is.
First I choose a leafy green, which can be anything from kale, chard ,romaine to spinach. This will form the base of the salad so it should have a nice texture that can withstand both being eaten raw,
and being mixed around with dressing/toppings. For this one I’m choosing baby spinach. Next up, Read the end of our blog post.
The rules and guidelines of the diet
I am always on the lookout for new diets to try out. I’ve tried all sorts of different ones, but the one that keeps coming back around is Paleo.
The rules are simple, you can eat meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables and fruit while avoiding dairy products and grains. After reading up on it more though it seems like there are some other restrictions as well.
It’s not just about what you’re eating but when you’re eating too! The idea is to have a small breakfast before 11am so your body has enough time to digest food without being hungry in the middle of the day.

Tips on how to eat more salads
We all know that eating more vegetables is a good idea for our health, but sometimes it can be hard to find the motivation.
This blog post will give you tips on how to eat more salads so that you are able to get your recommended amount of vegetable servings in.
The first step is deciding what type of salad you want to have.
There are different types of salads such as Caesar, Cobb, Greek, and Waldorf just to name a few. Knowing which one would best suit your needs will help make the decision process easier when choosing ingredients.
For example if you wanted something light and refreshing then having a cucumber salad or spinach salad might be perfect for you! If instead you need something hearty try adding eggs or grilled chicken breast.
I’m about to do something that will make my family, friends and doctors cringe. I’ve decided to eat only salads for the next year. This is because of two things: 1) I want to lose weight 2) I love eating salads.
I’m doing this for a number of reasons. I’ve been on a fat boy crusade to lose my popsicle belly since I turned 30. My blubber started going in my face and down to the floor in 2004. Yes, 2004.
How it’s going so far
I’m at the point in my life when I have a lot of decisions to make. I don’t know what it’s going to be like in five years, but I can tell you that it’s been a wild ride so far.
So here are some things that happen to me on a daily basis: -I live with my mom and brother who both give me really good advice about how to deal with stuff.
I go to school every day which is not easy because there are always tests and homework assignments or projects due.
Sometimes I get low grades even though I work hard, but other times when the stars align for me, everything seems easier. -In addition, working out has become one of my favorite pastimes.
I’m going to eat only salads for a year
I’m going to eat only salads for a year. I have never eaten what you would call “healthy” in my entire life so it should be interesting to see how this affects me.
I will write down the results every day and post them on this blog once a week, or if something crazy happens along the way! Wish me luck!
I concluded my experiment with a few lessons learned. Salad is delicious, but it’s also good to eat other things too! You can have your cake and salad too if you are careful about what foods you choose.
It turns out that while eating only salads for an entire year was fun (and very tasty), I’ve gained more than 10 pounds in weight since then because of the lack of variety in my diet.
So by all means, go ahead and enjoy healthy salads every day; just don’t forget to include some pasta or pizza once in awhile as well!
