Since the holidays passed and no matter how many times we say to ourselves “I will watch what I eat this year”, some of us actually don’t. Either there’s to much food or we do watch what we eat but all that juice we had after a meal mixed with beer, wine, champagne, cocktails or whatever will deposit themselves right on our butts and bellies.
In these situations I think it’s best to keep a short diet or a longer one if necesarry. It’s not easy but it’s healthy and it’s just what we need after a “feast”.
Dieting doesn’t need to be strict. A diet with results means eating healthy, not less and the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word diet is salad.
One of the salads I enjoy eating every once in a while is a light raw vegetable salad.
You only need 3 main ingredients:
1 big carrot
1/2 of a celery
These need to be washed, grated and put in a bowl.
Then you need:
2 spoons of vinegar
2 spoons of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of sugar
pepper (as much as you like)
All of these should already be at hand so all you need to do is mix them all in 1/2 glass of water and pour the dressing over the vegetables.
Mix everything and keep it in the fridge.
There you have it, a simple salad that you can eat whenever and as much as you like.
