Now, I know everyone wants to be healthy. We all want to have good vitality and vigor. But sometimes, it’s so damn inconvenient to cook up a big healthy meal, isn’t it? To chop all the vegetables, to mince the garlic, to crush the tomatoes. So what’s a good alternative? Well, I’ve been perusing various websites, and what I’ve come across is a blended salad is one key component to eating healthy without using up much of your time. Here’s how it works: You take lettuce, carrots, celery, maybe an avocado, and other vegetables that would normall go in a salad, tomatoes and such, and place them in a blender. Use the celery or carrots as a plunger to push all the veggies down to the blade and then let the blender blend them, too. Once it is all blended, you can pour it into a bowl and enjoy.
I’m sure it will not look appetizing and you may consider not eating it, but try it. It’s good, believe me. It may not be perfect on your first try, but experiment with different ingredients to make your ideal salad and then blend it. No chewing required.
One thing I’ve really been wanting to do is liquify most of my diet. Puree all the fruits and veggies so they are easily absorbed and I will not spend so much energy digesting all of them. Not only that, I don’t have to waste time chewing all of it. I’ll still get all the nutrients I need from it, as well as be able to save time and energy. It will also push me towards a raw diet, which is supposedly the best possible diet around, seeing as the foods are not destroyed by cooking. Now all I have to do is buy a blender. I feel it will be a worthwhile investment, though.
I may even eat this sort of concoction two or three times a day for optimal health. It’s a much better alternative than a burger or chicken parmesan, with much less calories as well. I’ll test out different recipes and see what works for me. I may even throw in a piece of chocolate (for the antioxidants). Wouldn’t be a bad idea.
