I have eaten this exact same salad for the last 7 days. I am consistent like that.
A few weeks ago I realized that it had been a long time since I had eaten lunch. Sure, I put food in my mouth, but I was always standing and it was an after thought in between caring for little mouths. I decided I needed to take a few minutes each day to actually sit down and eat.
Back in college I created this salad.
Catalina Salad Dressing
I loved it. I would eat it every day. I think I am a creature of habit.
Last week when I committed to doing a better job with lunch, I knew exactly what I was going to eat.
It has made a huge difference in my day. Instead of standing behind the counter while our daughter eats, I make this salad, and sit down right next to her. We laugh and talk and sing. Lately we have talked a lot about when she gets to start school, and about the upcoming summer swim season.
Lunch is now one of my favorite times of day.
Consider yourself warned. It is addicting.
Do you eat lunch, sitting down or stand up?
