Salads, salads, salads....easy and good!

so today is my birthday. i had about 400 happy birthday wishes on facebook! that made my day. and my hank giving me a laptop and taking me out to a wonderful dinner...that involved meat. forgive me, vegan gods, for i have sinned...again. however, the good news is that i found out that sugary desserts don't do it for me anymore! why? because after having rod's rich, creamy, HEALTHY desserts every day, i feel like i don't need the sugary, high calorie ones. it's like when you are in love with someone, you don't even look at other people. so thank you rod!
anyway, tomorrow i'm back on track with my vegan regime. this week it's all about delish salads. i'm gonna give you some recipes that are good for you, easy to make and inexpensive. now remember to buy organics veggies if possible. i know they cost a bit more but if you eat lots of veggies, you'll be surprised how much money you save by not buying expensive meats and processed foods.

salad of the day:
celery/carrot salad
2 cups thinly sliced celery,
1 cup thinly sliced carrots,
1/2 tbsp nama shoyu (soy sauce),
thinly sliced fennel,
2 tsp lemon juice,
1 1/2 tbsp sesame/olive oil.

smoothie of the day:
½ banana,
lots of kale,
1 Tbsp chia seeds.
a pinch of stevia.


Food of the Day-
String Beans:

Thought of the Day:
