recently, I had gotten away from eating salads... call it boredom. call it laziness. call it Ishmael. whatever. for some reason, salads were nonexistent in our household for a wee bit. now. that doesn't mean we weren't eating leafy greens... we were, I just got into the habit of either blending them into our smoothies or sautéing them to serve up with sunny-side up eggs (still a fave!).
but. I needed to get back into the habit of salads... not just for my overall well-being but because our littles (who just turned 5!?! what?!?) were watching what mama was eating and starting to refuse salads (cause I wasn't eating them). um. not good.
so. the search began with finding inspiration for salads - I need it... and what better place to search for food-inspiration than instagram, right? ugh. some folks take AMAZINGLY delicious looking food photos while my food art is a tad lacking in the artistic side. maybe I'll take some food photographer classes, they have those, right? hopefully, online.
anywho. after non-creepily social media stalking a few folks who I look up to in regards to nutrition... I noticed a few similarities, one being they each consumed a type of Cobb salad throughout the week. weird, right? hmm... I thought so, too. there's salads were similar but not the same + each one were calling it a Cobb Salad. interesting.
here's another cool tidbit about Cobb Salad: it's said to be a salad which was sort of just thrown together... check out the story here!
and that's what I did, loves... threw some ingredients together + tried to get a slew of colors on my plate. there is ONE thing I was aiming for though... well, two things:
MEAL PREP TIPS:
