    I am very proud of you! Always try new things, even if there are “just” salads. I don’t understand not liking salads because I love salads! Throughout most of the summer I eat salads everyday for lunch. I change them up a bit so they are not the same boring thing. Some of my co-workers will even eat salad with me. I love eating salads! They are so good for you! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed yours!

    The food looks amazing. I hate salads too, so congrats! That one did look good.

    *giggles* I knew it would be a salad–that’s awesome that you found one you liked! πŸ™‚

    The thing that I have come to enjoy about salads is that there are so many varieties of greens/lettuces and each has their own flavor. Tonight we had arugula and a spring mescalin mix and there was so much variety–from bitter to peppery to licorice–all at once! The farmer that we buy our CSA share from loves greens, so we get them all season long in various forms. It’s been a great joy learning about all the different flavors. I think that with your love of the intricacies of flavor that you could really come to enjoy experimenting with greens and perhaps you would see them as more than “just a salad.”

    ah oh, why do I go looking through your blog at 11PM at night?? Now I want to eat! Accept I don’t want any of my food, I want your food! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    This looks great. Love the staring with the amazing sounding smoothie. Yeah for salad. It looked like a rawsome one for sure. If you are going to give in and have a salad it might as well be one like that:). And can I drool over the dessert. Yum.

    A vending machine of RAW desserts??? My jaw is already dropped over that. You eating salad? For sure Living Light is the Twilight Zone.

    Want a roommate? Google maps says I can be there in 13 hours and 10 minutes.

    WOW! I couldn’t imagine my life without salad. My hubby and I have a BIG salad every night for dinner. πŸ™‚ Yours looked amazing. As did your smoothie, lunch and dessert. I am SO enjoying following along with your experiences at Living Light. Enjoy!

    Darling, can you come over here for a minute? *puts hand to your forehead* Are you burning up? No? You really don’t feel sick? Well, I am certainly glad to hear that, but is there any chance you’re in the process of creating a little goddaughter for me? I hear that can do funny things to a woman’s cravings. No? You’re sure?

    Well then. After my very scientific deductions, I can say a big congratulations for an genuine salad craving. Amazing. Congratulations! Now, back to the desserts, for my sake.

    Ryan’s been asking and asking if I’ve read your posts! I have been quite behind in keeping up with you πŸ™
    I am however, quite excited to hear not only about the class you have undertaken, but also about your salad eating!!!! lol Both are milestones!
    Last summer we drove to Oregon and I tried like crazy to fit in a night at the inn there. However they had a two or three night minimum and we could not spend that much time in one place -double sad face πŸ™ πŸ™
    I fugure one day I’ll just have to plan a vegan road trip through SF on up to Fort Bragg. But I know what you mean about it being teeny tiny. It would probably take me 14 hours or more to get there, too!
    Enjoy the class, learn lots, and be blessed.

    A whole new world of possibilities just opened up.

    I’m so glad you’re having fun!

  14. Deanna

    You crack me up. Next thing you know you’ll be eating kale straight up. The world will tip on its axis!

    It’s aliens. I’m sure of it. *folds arms and nods* Yep. No other reasonable explanation.

  16. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Brain parasites? A disturbance in the Earth’s electro-magnetic field? Careful marketing on the part of the pro-salad agenda? Whatever the reason, congratulations on your successful salad eating!

  17. Ela

    Awesome–something is happening with ‘the force.’ I want to hear about the rest of your life at Living Light too!

  18. (what runs) Lori

    I AM proud of you! You ate the whole salad (and I’m jealous too!) what a salad!

    And my dear, that dessert- WOW.

  19. Tori (Fresh Fruition)

    Yum! I could totally go for a smoothie right now. And that dessert looks delicious! I love raspberries.

    “”I ate a salad. And crazier yet, I think I liked it! Aren’t you proud of me!?!”” I think I just teared up a bit πŸ˜‰
