Omg. Wedge salads are so hot right now.
I'm not a big salad eater. Typically by the time I 'enjoy' eating a salad it has so much crap on it that it no longer resembles a salad, or anything healthy for that matter. But what I have enjoyed eating lately are wedge salads. I know it's ridiculous. Wedge salads are perhaps one of the least nutritious things you can eat. But like most people, I fall for things that look pretty and fancy. Let's break it down:
Iceberg lettuce: 0 nutritional value
Ranch/Blue Cheese dressing: -100 nutritional value
Bacon: -200 nutritional value
Onions, tomatoes, etc: Does it even matter at this point?
Lastly I would like to point out the lack of effort it takes to make these salads: You cut the lettuce into 4 pieces and pour stuff on top of it. Don't you feel glad you just paid $12 for it? If you make it at home you don't feel as bad :)
Sandwiches and I, on the other hand, are BFF's. I love all forms of sandwiches, which makes my rocky affair with gluten free so difficult at times. Good thing I have found a bread that is bearable (albeit WAY overpriced) so I am eating sandwiches once again. Rudi's Gluten Free, try it out. However, I still will not pass up the opportunity for a nice baguette or french bread.
This sandwich is one of my faves right now.
Gluten Free bread (or something more delicious), toasted
Honey roasted turkey
I have been so crazy about arugula since eating a burger from this place in San Francisco (hands down best burger ever - I got the French and Fries). I finally loosened the purse strings enough to buy some. I'm glad I did.
