Today's lunch is a salad. 1/2 head romaine lettuce, 2 stalks celery, 1 apple, diced, 1 oz crumbled feta cheese, 1 oz raisins, about 1/4 c black beans, two yellow apples, almonds, about 2 oz. of leftover lamb, sliced. Dressing is EVOO, red wine vinegar, S&P. Dessert is a banana (I hate bananas, but decided the health benefits outweigh my aversion to them--mind you, I am very, very picky about the ripeness and odor. I can't eat one in front of anyone, because I do gag between bites, but I'm working on it.

CWS, there is nothing in the world that would make me eat something that I had that much of an aversion to. Brussels Sprouts come to mind.

It has been a challenge. The bananas have to be perfect--not overly ripe, not too "banana-y" smelling and the only reason I'm eating them is for the health benefits. When the tomatoes are ripe, I'll dump the bananas.

What do you need from the bananas that you're not getting from something else you're eating?

That's how I eat bananas, I just don't do the gagging thing.

Have a hard time with bananas too, unless they're in something like a smoothie. Brussels sprouts, there's no way I'd eat them in anything.

That salad is definitely a meal. Look what's in it... all kinds of things that are good for you and it looks like it'd be pretty yummy. I love my lunch and dinner salads.. yup.... salad for dinner! Greens, red onion, cucumbers, celery, cheese and walnuts or spiced pecans with grilled chicken or salmon, or a turkey burger (sans roll) or pork chop on the side. A lunch salad might sometimes include tuna. I've found some great light cheeses that aren't like that processed garbage (like rubbery Cracker Barrel). One is a really good blue cheese either crumbled or a wedge by Bella, and the other is Trader Joe's Celtic cheddar.

Yummy Salad

Today is a really yummy salad with lettuce, red onion, cucumber, celery, TJ's red. fat Celtic cheddar, apples, dried cranberries, walnuts and grilled chicken. Dressing is my basic go-dressing (family recipe) with Greek yogurt and honey added. Definitely worthy of being dinner... but treating myself to a nice lunch. Picture below (wish I had tossed it first... looked nicer)
