ANTIDOTE TO WORRY: CRUNCHY SALAD

Crunching my worries away

I needed an antidote to worry this weekend, when my bike got a flat tire and then my car wouldn’t start. So here is the latest in my Antidote to Worry Series of food photos and such.

Here’s how I compose this satisfying crunchy salad:

  • A base of arugula
  • Trader Joe’s Healthy 8 chopped veggie mix, which contains broccoli, carrots, green cabbage, red cabbage, jicama, green bell pepper, radish, celery.
  • I add pine nuts; shelled, salted and roasted pistachio nuts; blue cheese; pomegranate seeds and orange muscat champagne vinegar (vinegar also from Trader Joe’s).

And just like that I crunch my worries away!

Btw, check out this chili recipe–improvised from a 140-character chili twecipe–that I made with my daughter, another antidote to worry.

How do you crunch away your worries?
