TBP’s Friday Favorites: The Salad Blues

I’m getting a little tired of sipping my greens, munching on salads, and crunching on raw veggies.  It’s a little chilly where I am and all I want to do is bake muffins and cook my vegetables!

Alas, I know how good raw veggies are for my cells so I’ve been looking for some inspiration.  I thought I’d share some of my finds with you.

    Maggie, You must have read my mind. I am really craving warmer versions of my veggies these days; especially with snow in the forecast. You’re right to remind us that even though cooked vegetables are a great part of our diet, we need to keep on including those raw veggies, too. Thanks for giving us so many delicious tips on how to do it!

    Hey Kim – I think it’s because we live in similar climates! Cooked veggies = comfort and warmth! I’m glad you enjoyed the post.


  • I am making that dressing tomorrow!!! Thanks for sharing! (And thanks for linking to my smoothie!) <3

    You’re welcome Heather! It was hard to pick just one from your site. Enjoy the dressing.

    Ooh, you’ve reminded me about carrot raisin salad. I’m the only one in the house that really enjoys it, but oh, it’s good! And of course, kale salad is ALWAYS a fav. :)


  • Vicky says:

    I Know exactly how you feel – sometimes salads just don’t feel appealing especially when it’s -4 degrees and there’s a lettuce to eat up in the fridge! I hate to waste food so we prepared the salad and my daughter quickly cooked a simple quinoa and chickpea dish which was just all it needed to spice it up!

    Thank you for the ideas!
