Everywhere I go
no matter the restaurant, no matter the time or temperature,
I begin the meal with a salad.
Rest assured that aside from breakfast- and well, I suppose lunch also, since it’s usually a garbage bowl of produce and bizarro- a mound raw veg will be present in some way before my main course.
I almost can’t think of an exception to this rule.
And I have to say,
it has served me well.
I think I’m keen on imagining myself becoming as vibrant as the veg. The salad starter is essentially my decision to begin with health, regardless of what’s to come. The fullness helps to slow me down during the main course, allowing for more enjoyment…a better experience altogether.
How often do you start your meals with salad?
