I am currently on a road trip through Western USA and Canada and cannot stop thinking about salad. Not the standard salads that seem to be on every menu around here that tend to lean heavily on cheese, mayo and candied nuts (why are these the bones behind salads these days?), but real salad that is mostly green with some fresh, colourful, crunchy veggies. Internal shower salad.
It is the time of year that our salad switches are turned back on and we start to crave this type of food again. Even more so if you happen to be on a road trip and your supply of healthy snacks is getting low and you’re beginning to eyeball the chips at the gas station, wishing you knew less about nutrition. Unless truck drivers have amazing partners (or are, themselves amazing) and make themselves kale chips and sprouted pumpkin seeds for their long journeys, I can’t see how Doritos, Red Vines and Dr Pepper wouldn’t become part of their regular diets. And all that sitting too. Poor Truck Drivers.
