belly up to the bar furiends, it's salad time! Yes I am talking about real honest-to-goodness raw veggies here.
When dad got the "big C" dx he and mom hit the books and read that increasing fruits and veggies and reducing meat and dairy, could be a big help - so our fridge is loaded with produce now. Every night it's chop chop on the old cutting board, and pretty soon I realized this was something very good.
After a few nights of chop chop, mom realized I was sitting right there giving her my most intense look so she left some pieces on the board and set it down on the floor for me to try, never dreaming I would actually eat it!
BOL! Of course I ate it! and begged for more! Now I get my own portion of salad every day. there's not much I don't like, except maybe that pesky parsley - I can't seem to chew it enough, it kinda tickles and I end up spitting it out, but everything else is devoured !!
so we got a routine going now - fridge opens, cutting board comes out, I sit! Shortly after I am rewarded!
now don't forget to eat your greens y'all !!
PS if any fur loves salad as much as I do, send me a p-mail, I want to hear about it !! BOL BOL
Dixie I hope your daddy is doing much better now that he is eating like a rabbit. I don't care for salads but then too I'm pretty spoiled and love my MEATZ and cheese - BOL, BOL
Hugs and kisses,
I love the daily salad bar here at home! There are only a few veggies that I won't eat. Anytime I hear a knife on the cutting board I know that it's a great thing! Plus, I love it when they drop stuff!
I like maters and cucumbers, but not lettuce!
