This salad is so delicious, and so healthy, it can change your life.
SUPER HEALTHY POWER SALAD
Willie Does a Cooking Show, LIVINGSTON, January 19, 2016 - Now that I'm in my 50s, I'm trying to make an effort to mostly eat healthy. That's not to say that I still don't enjoy a good fish fry, a baked potato, and rarely, some Blue Bell Ice cream from time to time. I've been experimenting with healthy ingredients for the last several years. I decided that when I go to the grocery store, I buy mostly healthy things to eat. Now that my kids are grown, I can focus more on what's best for my health, rather than cranking out a spaghetti dinner with buttery garlic bread to feed the family. Eating healthy starts in the grocery store.
Okay, the Salad...
Alright, this salad is PACKED with healthiness. Other than the chicken and boiled eggs, the rest is fresh and uncooked.
• Fresh collard greens (HEB or Wally World sells 'em pre-washed, bagged, and very affordable)
• 2 medium sized carrots
• 3 slices of purple onion (1/4 inch thick and diced)
• 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (diced). (Sauteed Tilapia is also a good choice)
• 1/4 cup of white vinegar
• 1/4 cup of lemon or lime juice
• 3/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil (California Olive Ranch is the very best and purest and it's available and Livingston Wally World)
• Salt to taste
• Miss Dash Seasoning
• Greek Seasoning
• 1 and 1/2 cup of quick oats
So there's what ya need. All is easily affordable and readily available at Livingston WalMart. I failed to mention in the video, YOU DON'T PUT ANY SALAD DRESSING ON THIS SALAD. Watch the video, and you'll know EXACTLY how to make the salad. If you follow the instructions on the video, you'll have an ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS salad that is packed with healthiness.
I apologize for how goofy that I look and sound on the video. At my age, I've come to accept that I'm goofy. It's okay. I like myself.
Watch the video (below) and you'll know EXACTLY how to make this salad.
