Foodie Friday: Very Veggie Salad

Today is Food Friday at Designs by Gullum where lots of people go to share their goodies on Fridays.  Go check them, there's something for everyone.

 I have not been eating enough veggies so I'm shooting for a mostly vegetarian (Lacto-Ovo-Vegetarian to be exact) menu in an effort to improve my health, energy, and life.  It's amazing how on day one of eating nothing but veggies, berries and drinking water all day I felt fantastic despite the fact that I was running on about 3 hours of sleep.  I'm on day 5 and still feel fantastic.

Anyway, here's my Very Veggie Salad -- enjoy!

Uncooked Ingredients--how much you use it's up to you:

baby carrots
mozzarella cheese
(I used 2 mozzarella cheese balls- that comes in small balls soaked in olive oil)

Cook the following Ingredients in  a bit of olive oil:

baby bella mushroom

Toss it all together (or Not!) --  enjoy!


  1. YUM...I love chickpeas in a salad.


  2. This sounds very good (and healthy). I need to try eating just fruits and vegetables for a couple of days too. I need to lose some weight and gain a lot of energy. Love to hear how long you stay on the diet and the benefits you see!

  3. What a gorgeous photo! Have a great holiday.

  4. What a tasty combinations of flavors in your salad, Yira. The cranberries add a nice tartness with the carrots.

  5. What a BEAUTIFUL!!! photo and a GREAT!!! combination of flavors.

  6. I'm strolling in to catch up and especially to wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving!
    It's such a wonderful time to stop and reflect on all those we cherish and are truly grateful for.
    Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit and leave feeling inspired!

    Even though our Thanksgiving is very small in number, with hubby and son (we don't count the cat cause she doesn't like turkey). We don't scrimp on the menu...from appetizers to desserts with several carb loaded dishes in between! We will be enjoying tryptophan playoffs too!

    Sweet Holiday wishes,
