Gluten-Free Salad Challenge

After reading about this salad challenge and realizing that I had missed the sign up date, I decided to make up my own, gluten-free salad challenge!  I love salads and eat them almost daily.  I do get in a rut, though, and this is just the thing to pull me out of that rut!  :)  So, here is my challenge:

To eat at least 1 salad/day for 2 weeks.  Each salad has to contain the following:

~ At least 1 cup of salad greens (spinach, arugula, kale, mixed greens, etc)

~ At least 1 serving of another vegetable of a different color (tomatoes, carrots, red peppers, radishes, etc)

~ A source of protein (cheese…lots of choices, meat/meat sub., beans, nuts, eggs)

~ Dressing is optional, but I usually use at the very least EVOO & balsamic)

~ Bonus: Max. 1 handful or one serving of something else that I may not normally put in a salad or in the particular salad that I made.  I have been known to use Fritos as GF croutons!  So, things along those lines.  Maybe I’ll give cereal a try?  LOL! 

I am going to commit to this for 2 full weeks, starting on Wednesday, April 15, 2009 (tax day, what better day?).  Anyone else up for the Gluten-Free Salad Challenge?  Just post here or shoot me an email.   I’ll put together a little raffle for those who play along and enter your names into a contest and send out a GF Goody Bag!  :)  For those who do play along for the GF Goody bag, make sure to document your salads. ;) 

Woohoo!!  I am excited!  I love challenges & goals and I love salads.  This will certainly inspire me to be more creative!

  3. [...] Gluten-Free Salad Challenge Day #2 Jump to Comments I am so loving the salad challenge!  Today I had a salad for lunch that consisted of just spinach, grape tomatoes & pine nuts with a drizzle of Light Creamy French dressing.  This doesn’t really count in my salad challenge as it doesn’t meet all my “requirements“.  [...]
