Really. It’s not as austere as it sounds. You can still have a lunch or dinner salad in cold weather and not feel as if you’re being punished.
I like spinach as a base. Mixed with some pretty greens such as some baby romaine, or even mature romaine, it adds substance. If you warm up your protein, such as grilled chicken or fish, that helps. Add in all the sturdier veggies you can: slivers of carrot, broccoli or cauliflower trees, onion slices.
Adding some healthy fat in the form of nuts or avocados helps you to feel satisfied as well. Even a judicious amount of cheese can go a long way. Really.
