I eat salad everyday. It’s fresh, clean, alkalising and nourishing. The most common complaint that I hear from people is getting bored with the combinations. As in, most people get stuck eating the same salad over and over again. I’m going to be doing something to help you with this, so keep posted. Would you beleive me if I said that pre 2005 I never really ate salad? It’s true! It just never featured in my family’s mealtimes. It was always meat, potato and veg. Salad? That’s for rabbits isn’t it? My dad still has a hard time eating it as he is a meat and potatoes kind of man but every now and then I am able to coerce him into eating a mouthful of two with dinner.
I always buy organic because my food tastes much better without pesticides and herbicides. This mixed leaf concoction was what arrived from my organic box scheme provider Riverford.
