an apple a day

Most days I have no idea what the carnivore has for lunch. I assume it isn't very healthy. I, on the other hand, probably have my healthiest meal of the day at lunch. Often it involves a salad. And, I am constantly trying to come up with new salads to keep my lunches interesting. Here is my latest concoction, inspired by that old saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

It certainly is healthy if nothing else. The apples pack in lots of fiber and vitamin C. The pecans give you fiber and iron. And, of course, the leafy greens give you vitamin A and the parmesan provides you with calcium.

Convinced it is good for you yet? Here is how I make it. I start with a base of organic mixed baby greens. I then top them with a small handful of pecans. I slice 1/4 of a green apple. I sprinkle this with sliced parmesan. Finally, I make a spicy sweet dressing by mixing equal part horseradish and honey djion mustards. Delicious! And of course, healthy too, not that the carnivore would ever know...
