This is what was in it:
2 handfuls of chopped romaine lettuce
1 very large handful baby arugula
1 medium head of raw broccoli chopped, including stem
1/4 small red onion finely sliced
1/3 cup chopped cooked red beets (don't I feel virtuous about eating those!!!)
1/2 cup cooked garbanzo beans
Some Vidalia Viniagrette salad dressing
I forgot the ground flaxseed meal I planned to put on top.
I tossed all this together and managed to eat it all. I woke up this morning 3 pounds lighter!! That may have had something to do with the fact that I ate one medium/large baked-in-the-microwave russett potato and one Tofurky kielbasa link (seasoned with a little General Tso's sauce) for my other meal for the day. Plus a good bit of water.
This was Day One of my 10-day goal of eating totally plant-based foods. We will see if I can get beyond the first day. Not as easy as one might expect.
The idea for the 10-Day plant-based eating came this time from Dr. McDougall's webpage. If you go to this page and look at the column on the right you will see 10-Day Meal Plan. It is the same thing he uses in his very expensive residential program. Click on that plan and download a PDF of his recipes. They mostly seem reasonable to me, though because they are different from our "usual" I will probably have trouble selling them to the local family. Oh well. I can become healthier....
