Self-Discipline of a Salad


Spring is upon us and with it comes the yearly change in appetite for me. I switch from heavier, stick-to-your-ribs foods to lighter fare. I've switched from cheddar cheese to muenster and soft cheeses. And, I begin looking at fresh leafy greens rather than cooked.

Unfortunately, I lack the self-discipline to create and eat a salad. Salads are time-consuming and they don't tend to keep well once made. I have visions of delicious, healthy salads in so many varieties, but never seem to get past opening the fridge door!

One of these days I'm just going to have to put my big-girl apron on and start chopping. I'll have that salad yet! It just takes self-discipline.
