Nutrient-Dense Salad and Dessert

Kim and I made a salad without leafy greens because we didn’t have any leafy greens, but it made a tasty nutrient and energy-dense meal. Most of the ingredients came from Costco:

  • avocado
  • sweet peas
  • tomato
  • olives
  • artichoke hearts
  • capers
  • cheese
  • parsley
  • onion
  • brussel sprouts
  • sea salt & seasoning
  • olive oil (lots of it)

This was delicious!

Costco does have a lot of whole real foods. Of course there is an entire section of the store devoted to grains and there are huge aisles of boxed processed foods to avoid.

After you eat this salad, you may want something that is a bit sweet. So we had some yogurt, mixing in berries and ground cinnamon. Unfortunately, the only yogurt stocked in Costco had the fat processed out of it. So, for convenience, I lowered myself to buying a processed NON-FAT food. Had there been added sugars, I would not have bought it. We mixed a few spoonfuls of coconut oil into it along with the berries and that made it taste really good.

A criticism of low-carb high-fat diets is that it can be difficult to get nutrient variety. Actually, getting variety is really easy, even when you shop at Costco.
