Ugh here we go,  another salad recipe. I love salad, it’s all your healthy stuff in one bowl, no guilt. Dinner is so easy if you just grill a piece of chicken or steak and have an awesome salad, sit outside and enjoy summer. The ingredients in this are all fresh from the farmer’s market (well, ok, I know we don’t have avocados in the midwest) and they are all good for you, I think.

Our conversation over dinner was about corn. 

the boys: “is corn even good for you?” “it just seems to go straight through” 

KN: “I just read that your body doesn’t have the “chemical” to break corn down. Cows do, but not people”

the boys: “so why are you making us eat it?”

Me: “because when was the last time you ate something that was from a plant?”

the boys: silent

Me: “yeah, that’s what I thought. Eat up, it’s called a vegetable. Hopefully your body won’t go into shock”
 Of course I googled it, and according to this Huffington Post article, it has nutrients and vitamins. So ha! Eat up!

  And if you eat your vegetables, you get ice cream @ Kilwins!
