I’ve been a big fan of cucumber salads. Easy to make, somewhat good source of water, and more importantly, good for digestion when you are taking lots of protein. Right now I’m taking 100g of protein from shakes alone, not counting at least half a pound of animal remains…err meat and/or poultry.
Without this type of salad (and my morning bowl of oatmeal and yogurt), it gets really difficult to take so much protein (at least for me). Read “really difficult” as an euphemism for serious physiological dysfunctions, massive organ failure and internal necrosis.
So this is how I make a quick salad (specially for a few folks that have asked in other threads about how to eat healthy with simplicity.)
Main Ingredients: (about 2g of fiber, 3g if you use one tbspoon of ground flaxseed)
— half a cucumber (medium size)
— one small tomatoe
— two small radishes
— some pickled ginger (the type used for sushi), the more the better.
Additional Spicing Stuff:
— feta cheese
— half a teaspoon of olive oil
— cilantro (the more, the better)
— dried oregano, parsley, basil
— some salt and lemon juice
— one tbspoon of ground flaxseed (or toasted wheat germ)
Animal Remains/Stuff for protein: (about 42+/- g of protein)
— one boiled egg ( 6.3g of protein )
— 4 shrimps (about 6g of protein ) — skip it if you are allergic to seafood
— 6 oz of chicken ( 32g of protein ) — I usually quick fry it with honey mustard
Note: If you are veg, just replace all that with tofu or something.
These are the ingredients after you dice the shit out of them (high resolution pic thingie here).
Preparation-Fu: (about 5 mins, 15 if you are a tard.)
— dice the shit out of the vegetables (see above pic)
— dump the diced cucumbers, radishes and cilantro into a bowl or container thingie, and mix them
— dump one tbsp of ground flaxseed (or toasted wheat germ), and mix the crap out of it
— dump the feta cheese, and stir like a man, or a strong lady… you get the point
— dump some oregano, parsley, basil, salt and lemon into the mix. Stir again.
— dump some diced pickle ginger and olive oil. Stir
— put the diced animal remains/stuff (chicken, shrimp and egg), or toffu if you are a veg into the mix. Stir the crap out of it (or put them nicely if you want to impress a lady)
And voila, some greens with protein and fiber. And to top it off, the salad is a good one, not one of those lettuce salads that makes you feel like a cow munching grass.
This is what it looks like at the end (high resolution pic thingie here.)
NOTE: if you really hate cucumbers, and I can’t think why on Baal’s name you would, you can use raw or microwave-nuked cauliflower and/or brocolli.
