30 Bananas a Day!

I like to have vegetables at night, but I find myself getting somewhat tired of just plain cucumber noodles with tomatoes (although sometimes my taste buds love it!). I just bought spring mix yesterday, so I had that with cucumber noodles and tomatoes. What do you include in your evening salads? And if it's not a salad, what does your raw dinner consist of? I would love to know!

Spring mix is great but I'll get romaine or even spinach sometimes. I'll add everything I possibly can. Like: Tomato, carrots, cucumbers, celery, bell peppers, onions, pickles, avocado, corn, black beans, peas, strawberries, pineapple, sunflower seeds, pecans, almonds, orange slices, apple slices, chickpeas, sesame seeds, hemp seeds.....if it's a plant, I'll add it to a salad. Not usually all of these at once but a combination of a few each time. I like to mix it up and it usually just depends what's in the fridge. I'll make my own ranch dressing sometime using coconut milk or almond milk. Or I'll make my own dressing with avocado and mango blended up with turmeric or some other random spice. The flavors of some of these combinations are amazing and some are just ok. All of them are good though. Eating raw has made my taste buds come alive. I never noticed how delicious raw plants were before I quit eating meat, dairy and eggs. Anyway, I hope this helps!

Wow, I think it's great that you include that much variety into your salads! The more the better! I am starting to become more mindful of food combing though because yesterday, I diced up a couple apples into my salad and that combination REALLY created pain in my stomach for a little bit. I used to be in love with onions in my salad, but it creates this weird, almost burning feeling in my stomach and it also caused me to smell a little weird (which onions will do!), so I ditched it. Thank you for your detailed response!

For sure everybody has their issues with certain things. I just get so bored with the same stuff all the time I try to experiment all the time. I do the same with smoothies and juicing occasionally. I had a few stomach issues combining but trying to pin point what it was that caused it was next to impossible to say the least. Eventually I just got over it. Not sure if it was my stomach getting more used to combined raw foods or it finally recovering from a long life of eating dead animals or what but I have zero problems combining anything anymore. I know the complexity of it all can be a ton to try and keep up with so I just have one motto I use as a permanent rule of thumb; If it's a plant, I eat it....! lol

Hahaha great motto. I hope the poor food combining pain will go away in time, yet again, if it doesn't, I just have to be more aware of the foods I eat together.

Lots of interesting combinations!

I used to LOVE red bell peppers! I don't know if it was my taste buds that changed or what, but they started tasting funny to me. I haven't had them since last year or so!

My base is a lettuce and then I add all kind of fruit (tomatoes, avocado, peaches, oranges, bananas, apples, plums,...) diced and also blended for the dressing.

I also add some seeds or nuts and seaweeds, tamari, miso.

Are you fully raw?

I need to improve on salads. The good news is that I finally got my volume up to 2 heads of lettuce at a time. 

Red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, or romaine lettuce.

Large bowl of lettuce, with 2 chopped organic tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, lemon squirted on top, piece of an avocado (carrots once a month or so). 

I went from 1 or 2 heads of lettuce a week, to about 8 heads of lettuce per week. But I need to find ways to mix it up, and get rid of the lemon and avocado I think.....

 

id eat any salad combination there is, as long as someone else makes it for me LOL. i know it sounds lazy but food always tastes better for some reason when someone else makes it for you XD

looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
