Canned Salad, 3 Ways

cannedsalad004 Amaya said to me, “I think you should stop your Paleo diet.”

“Why?”

“Because I feel bad eating food in front of you.”

I wish everyone in my family felt bad about the seemingly more than ever amounts of carbs and sweets that are in our cupboards lately. Most of these extreme eating plans require you to purge your cupboards but most of these people are not married to a Jake. But we can’t all look like Greek gods and eat Pop Tarts for breakfast, granola bars for snacks, and cookies for dessert now can we.

It’s when I start looking through our carb-laden cupboards that I start feeling weak in the knees. I can’t say enough about having something planned when you’re on a diet.

Tip #2: Take Away Choice and Plan Your Meals (especially when you’re feeling strong)

I’m strongest in the morning. I don’t have much temptation to eat crap before 11 am. It’s easiest for me to follow my diet when I’m at school. That’s because any meals or snacks I have are already packed. I don’t get a choice. I’m a person who hates planning dinners for the week. I want to look in my fridge and make something. I want to go shopping for whatever whim I have that day. I really dislike having no choices, but this does make it way easier.

I still end up having a choice for dinner, but one choice is easier than many choices.

The “Salad in a Jar” has been making the Pinterest crowd rounds, and I decided to try them out for my lunches.

I can’t really stand to eat only a salad for dinner, but salad for lunch is fine. It was a lot of work to make 5 salads, but I appreciated not having to prepare anything for the rest of the week. If I wanted it to be easier, I would make the same 5 salads and change it up every week. Now that I’m eating Paleo, I would need to change these recipes a bit, but there are a million variations on this theme.

The basic principle is, wet and heavy on the bottom, dry on the top. That didn’t quite sound right, but it is. The pieces at the bottom soak into the dressing and make it extra good. The lettuce should not be touching anything wet. This one was the last salad I had that week and it was still perfectly fresh. I used old peach jars, and some large canning jars.

I just really want someone to make it for me! I love the ideas! Maybe one day I'll actually try it! :P

Good luck with the diet!

Michela said...

I never tried salad in a jar, great idea! I have to try it soon!

I have been following your blog for a while now, but just recently decided to start one myself and comment :)
I just wanted to let you know that I really like yours, all your recipes look scrumptious :)

Damaris @Kitchen Corners said...

All of these salads look really good. Go you! Is the paleo diet working?

Mariko said...

Carol: Ha ha ha. These are definitely recipes you could make! :)
Michela: Thank you for the compliment. I just perused yours (with google translate) and you've got quite a good thing going yourself! I will have to try those zucchini brownies... (in a month. Ha ha.)
Da: Thanks. The jury's still out. I'm definitely eating less-- probably because it's such a bother.

chelsea said...

those all look amazing...

Katie Lewis said...

I am totally with you on only being strong until around 11am. Even though I'm home all day, I think I'm going to have to try out these weekly-prepared salads in a jar. Because, ya know, I usually don't eat lunch at 10:30am.
