I had a fantastic weekend of eating. Doughnuts, tater tots with fried eggs, sausage & cheese, a mushroom burger with fries, bourbon, pumpkin ice cream sandwiches…THE WORKS. While I’d like to think I’m gonna spend the next week living off of greens, smoothies & green juices, I know myself all too well.
I know that I my tastebuds still want something hearty after eating excessively. I know that a shock to the system with a little green injection is what I need, but if I don’t add something with a little ooooomph, I’m liable to turn EAT WEEKEND into EAT WEEK. I just know this.
This salad straddles the line between healthy & indulgent. There’s spinach, tomato & avocado–all healthy things. But, there’s also bacon and the combination of the bacon and slivered almonds= CRUNCH TOWN. How could I forget to mention the dressing? It’s super savory with the soy sauce and the creamy avocado base! It’s everything I want in a salad when I’m trying to be good yet I still wanna be bad.
This is the story of my life.
