Big Mouth Big Foot Salad

I’ve been told I have both and though I’d argue the mouth one, that might just confirm other’s view points. 😉

My feet clock in at 10-10.5, if you were wondering and I just got back from a couple miles of walking while out running errands and I was really hungry. Extremely hungry. One of my errands was to stop at Fred Meyer and fill our fridge up just a little bit before we go to the farmer’s market tomorrow. Have I mentioned it’s never a good idea to go grocery shopping on an empty stomach when you’re walking?

I brought one bag with me, thinking there’s no way one heaping heavy basket will fill more than one large whole foods bag. Wrong. Have I not shopped with myself before? Seriously.

Well I made it home (with 2 bags) and the marks from carrying the basket are slowly disappearing. After the walk and grocery haul ‘strength training’ session, I was ravenous, hence the Big Mouth Big Foot Salad. 😉

Big Mouth Big Foot Salad

    This would make a great side salad for 2 or a filling salad for 1.


    • a couple handfuls of spinach
    • handful of parsley, diced
    • handful of cilantro, diced
    • 1/4 onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 small tomato, diced
    • 1 ear of sweet corn, kernels removed
    • 2 stalks celery, small chopped
    • 1/2 small avocado, sliced
    • steamed broccoli, lightly sauteed in a smidge of olive oil, minced garlic, and chili garlic hot sauce
    • your favorite dressing or olive oil/lemon juice


    1. Combine ingredients in a large bowl and enjoy!

    Feel free to top with a little nutritional yeast – yum!

    On a side note I cut my bangs today (these are both after shots) after watching a youtube tutorial and I LOVE THEM! I think I cut about 1 1/2″ off…with craft scissors no less. 🙂 Someone on facebook asked me if I got a face lift – lol – because I looked years younger than the last time I saw him. Thanks! But no – just good clean veggie eating with the occaisonal bad girl splurge (read: chips, cheese, and chocolate) 😉

    Other things I’m up to:

    • reading Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics courtesy of the Portland Library (win!)
    • reading David Wolfe’s Eating for Beauty
    • reading 80/10/10
    • reading Salem’s Lot
    • walking/hikes with inside strength training (a little Blogilates pilates and Skimble app workouts)
    • Jeremy and I have watched Contagion, Paranormal Activity 3, and Big Love season 5 (thank you library!)
    • we’re planning on having vegan sausages for me and maybe meat ones for Jeremy covered in homemade sauerkraut for dinner tonight

    Have a fabulous weekend everyone and I would love to hear from you and what you’re up to this weekend. XOOX

      What are you thinking of 80/10/10…. I am attempting to give it a GO.. well kind of.. I am just having a hard time digesting anything other than soft stuff or things that are blended in the VItamix…. Then voila, all kinds of =80/10/10 info showed up.. it makes sense but so do all the other things I read too. How is a gal to choose.. guess I will let me body choose, either that or my wallet..

        I like 80/10/10 especially for the meal ideas (not sure if you’re the same Sarah from fb but hello again if you are). I’m going to do a smoothie feast starting tomorrow or Tuesday for about a week, so maybe I’ll also use that time to reflect on 80/10/10 too. I’m very good at ‘rationalizing’ most things I read though so….. I like the idea of the body/wallet choosing. 😉
