My diet consisted of; no breakfast, poached eggs on toast for lunch and this salad for dinner. I ate it every night for a month. This is my dilemma, can I stick to the same thing for a month. Could you?
I just know I need to cut out dairy in my diet. If you have looked at most of my dinner recipes you might have noticed a lot of them have a creamy sauce. I’m a sucker for a good cream sauce, and I have gained weight because of it.
Before you get all excited about trying to eat this Greek Salad every night to lose weight, I also want you to remember I had poached eggs on toast for lunch. Your body needs the following nutrients to stay healthy; carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals. My protein was the poached eggs, carbs came from the wheat toast, fats from the oil in the dressing and the butter on my toast, a lot of the vitamins and minerals came from the vegetables, but I also took a supplement loaded with vitamins and minerals.
So if your going to eat this salad for dinner make sure your lunch consists of your carbohydrates and protein. If you don’t like eggs and toast have a chicken sandwich with a little bit of lite mayo or a chicken breast with a baked potato topped with a dollop of real butter. Serves 2
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
