After I read an article about the effects of unnatural sugar on your body, I became interested in the topic. I wondered how much sugar I had in an average day. I was shocked by how much processed and added sugar was in my average diet. I then decided that I would try to reduce this amount and instead gain my sugar intake through natural sources.
This salad is perfect for a main course. I had some with some gluten-free buckwheat crackers on the side to add a little more crunch to the salad. This also is great to keep in the fridge for lunches or meals later in the week.
This salad is perfect for a small side dish or even as a great addition to a veggie burger. Personally, I had made this dish as a side addition to some asian cucumber rolls for a light summer dinner. I also would recommend adding some nuts, either peanuts or almond slices on top.
These rolls are a perfect small asian dish that is easy to make and can be saved in the refrigerator and added to lunches later in the week. I had cooked these for a family dinner with a side cabbage salad, however these would also make great party appetizers. Serve with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger.
This salad is so easy and is absolutely delicious for any summertime meal. I personally made this for a picnic and fireworks show with some veggies and cheese dip on the side. It would also pair nicely with either a lean chicken breast for the more meat enthused.
Before considering dieting you should evaluate your lifestyle. Ask yourself a set of questions to find out why you think you should be on a diet (How much/little do you eat? What do you eat? When do you eat? Do you workout?…). By first looking at your daily life you can figure out what it is that you want to change and can physically change. For example, if you find yourself snacking tons, find out why. Is it because you didn’t eat enough earlier? Maybe you are just bored?
