So, I"m a pretty active person. By active, I mean really busy. I do exercise regularly too. I don't have time to sit down and eat a salad. It takes me an exorbitant amount of time to eat a salad. Is there anything... (more)
I work night shift .I eat one big meal a day ,which contains a big salad ( lettuce, green pepper ,cabbage , ) the dressing will be olive oil and vinegar , sometimes I add Hummus on the top of my salad . Whole grain rice with mushroom ... (more)
So I'm eating salads again and would like to know what sort of easy, quick, relatively painless yet delectable and nutritious salads you guys like to prepare. Fire off! And hey: if you want to offer a complicated, convoluted salad recipe I... (more)
I buy the organic pre-washed greens from earthbound. Their 50/50 spinach/spring mix + left over turkey, tomato, onion, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper BOOM awesome salad. Add feta for extra awesome.
Hi Everyone, My first question so I hope I am not retreading a well worn path. I am trying to incorporate more raw foods into my diet. I typically eat a lot of veg but it tends to be of the variety I can stew/soup/roast... The leafy greens... (more)
Among the popular salad dressings that are widely available, which ones are relatively paleo-friendly? Thanks!
OK, so this is probably a stupid question. What does everyone eat as the "greens" for their salad. I grew up eating iceberg lettuce with a few tomatoes and that was considered a salad. I know that iceberg lettuce is not the best option. Lately... (more)
I am eating a VERY big salad daily. Relatives are concerned about the possibly high content of oxalates I am taking. The daily salad consists mainly of: Lollo rosso/red cabbage Romaine cabbage Spinach One small red beet 1-2 Small... (more)
Sooo I'm at work, and I have a salad with me. It's a salad I prepared 4 days ago. Salad dressing is not on the salad of course. It's spinach, cut romaine, peppers, onions, little chopped vegetable bits. It LOOKS ok. Would you eat it? How long can... (more)
It's probably fine, especially if it's not dressed, so take a sniff. Smells fresh? Great. Toss around with a fork to make sure nothing looks slimy - if yes just pick those bits out and eat away! Note: I like to keep all my ingredients separate... (more)
Do you eat a Big Ass Salad? It is part of something Mark Sisson advocates, so I see some posts here and there about what people put on their BAS with details on the numerous ingredients in their giant salads. I used to eat a BAS (especially... (more)
So... I may be confused here, but you could help me out. So I'm a newcomer to paleo, as Robb says I'll try it for 30 days. However a lot of my meals have a basis of salad and 'green stuff'. So when I go luck at Robb Wolf's food matrix to make... (more)
You can eat salad. No harm in that. You might like to read Sisson. He includes a salad. Either way. Eat and Enjoy.
Hey all. I am new to the site, but have read a bunch up here while getting into eating the evolutionary diet. My question is this... are there any commercially available salad dressings that are paleo approved? (and also don't contain EDTA, free... (more)
I've read that coconut oil can be used for salad dressing but it seems too thick to me. What do you all use? Alternatives to consider are avocado oil, olive oil, and red palm oil (haven't tasted it yet). Maybe I can mix these with coconut oil to... (more)
i usually make my own dressing, which usually consists of EVOO, balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, and sometimes a bit of garlic. salsa and/or guacamole also works as an excellent salad dressing!
I like to have something with strong flavor and crunchy to put on my salads to make them more interesting. So far I've been using Jungle snacks dehydrated kale chips. These work well but at $8 for a bag that lasts about a week, it's an expensive... (more)
Oh god, make your own kale chips. It kills me how much people are charged for that little container when big fat bunches of organic pesticide free are just a few bucks. Some folks use oil and seasonings when they make, I literally just wash, pat... (more)
Lately every time I eat salad with coconut oil I have to go to the bathroom QUICK!! And sometimes undigested food comes out --salad leaves YUCK! Is it the coconut oil or salad? Salad is just organic romaine-- coconut oil I have been eating for... (more)
I am getting ready to take a after work class. As a result I will have to bring dinner with me. I have been using dinner leftovers as lunch and I can keep that up for the others dinner. I am thinking I will bring one bag of greens and another... (more)
My fave salad combo is some chicken, bacon, avocado & boiled egg. For dressing I just do a little cider vinegar or lemon juice, olive oil, dijon mustard, and a little honey.
I'm looking to jazz up my salad's. Right now I usually do arugula, raw baby carrots, sun dried tomatoes, cucumbers (peeled), olives, avocado and some type of meat or fish. What do you all put on your Big Ass Salads??
I'm brand new to the Paleo diet and I am not a "cooking" kind of guy . . . but I'm diving in and doing it. Regarding quick and easy meals, obviously salad + chicken, etc . . . is a good Paleo meal. But what are some quick and easy salad dressings... (more)
I don't think of it as "salad" as much as a few raw greens sitting between my meat and my plate.
I'm ditching olive oil based salad dressing. What can I substitute for it? Here's what I've brainstormed so far: Coconut oil. Pro- Tastes good. Con- Might make me feel queasy at times. Also, I'm already eating lots of saturated fat, and I... (more)
All right, I've been following a Primal lifestyle (tending towards Paleo, too) for just over 3 years now and, pretty much every day, I'll eat a huge salad for lunch. Usually, it'll have some sort of greens (mix of romaine, spring mix, and... (more)
So if you're getting plenty of K2, do you still need some K1 to help with clotting or something? Leafy greens don't do well in my gut is why I ask. What are the best sources of K2? If I do still need K1, what are some good sources that don't... (more)
I eat big salads a couple of times a week with sardines and olive oil. I recently read raw spinach is not the healthiest choice. what are the best choice for salad greens? spring mix? arugula? lettuce?
Hi, I'm new to paleo and was wondering if I could get a suggestion on which lunch meal would be the best? I'm terrible at packing lunches but there is a fantastic salad restaurant near my work I can walk to. Their site is:... (more)
