If you follow me on the Nutmeg Notebook Instagram account or facebook you have seen my photos of what I have dubbed “BBS” – big beautiful salads! Hubby Tom and I love these giant salads that are indeed a full meal. When I first transitioned to a whole food plant based diet I was following a lot of Dr Furhman’s principals and one of them is to eat a big salad as a meal. We don’t do this every day but we do make it for a few meals each week. Since I received such good feedback about my first video I decided to make another. This time we used a better camera and I used the proper settings to put it on You Tube and I am happy with the results. I hope you enjoy the video and make yourself a “BBS.”
Just look at how pretty that salad is!
We love the Creamy Balsamic Dressing that is oil, salt and nut free! I use white beans instead of nuts to make this and you would never know it has beans in it. It’s been a big hit with my plant based friends! I have also fed it to people who don’t follow a plant based diet and they liked it too! Here is a link to the Creamy Balsamic Dressing.
I would love to know what other topics or recipes you would like to see in a video. Please leave me a comment and let me know.
Happy Healthy Cooking,
A Little Nutmeg Nugget: When I started this blog in January of 2010 I followed what I understood to be a healthy version of the standard American diet, ironically also known as the “SAD” diet. As interest in my own health and how it was affected by the food I ate evolved, I transitioned to a whole food plant based diet also known as “WFPB” diet. I have wrestled with the fact that this blog still contains all those posts and recipes from the SAD way of eating I have left behind. I no longer advocate for anyone to eat that way. At this time I am leaving those recipes and posts here. It is a record of my journey and how I came to follow a WFPB way of eating. It is my hope that those who still come here for those old recipes will be curious about what I am doing now. Perhaps they will dip their toes across the line as I did and try some plant based recipes and learn more about the health benefits.
