March is nutrition month in Canada, and I’m taking the hint. I need to eat more nutritious foods! Spring is just around the corner (even though Winter has returned to Ottawa in a big way), but before I know it, it will be time for shorts and tank tops (hello thunder-thighs and chicken arms).
So, it’s been decided over here at DD that March will be SALAD MONTH. Tonight we’re doing two salads for dinner: Ginger Steak, and Orzo Caprese. That’s right, we’re taking salad land by storm. No more boring (but still tasty) baby spinach and balsamic vinaigrette. We’re talking shrimp, couscous, squash, wild rice, fennel, mango. You name it, and we’re making a salad with it!
Check back daily for a new salad recipe. Each one will have nutritional information, and will either be filling enough to be your whole meal, or have suggestions to make it into a meal.
Time to get excited about salad in a big way! I know I am :)
Check back later this evening for the first installment.
