Now that the weather’s turning colder, most of us are embracing something called Winter Froze Salad. This dish is basically warm frozen vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower topped with chicken, mozzarella, egg noodles, Parmesan cheese and lemon. So, people think that this simple combo can be enjoyed every single day. Not so! Before you start running around salivating over the visions of this frozen salad I have some good news for you: everything will break down a little faster now that it’s winter. Which is great because the better things break down the more we can enjoy them! Here are a few tips that will help make Winter Froze Salad easier to continue enjoying once it’s winter:
Here are some tips that will help make Winter Froze Salad easier to continue enjoying once it’s winter:
Clean the vegetables once per week, washing and drying them thoroughly. If you tend to use organic herbs in your salad, ensure you plant the herbs in the right soil type to ensure that they won’t wilt over time.
This salad tastes great on its own, but it’s a much better idea to put some fried zucchini slices in it as well. You might need to eat them already broken down since our salad won’t be quite as beautiful, juicy and crispy.
Many frozen vegetables don’t have a lot of nutrition in them, meaning that you won’t even gain any extra weight in this diet. That said, some frozen vegetables like cauliflower might require you to do a little work to get the most out of your meal. Make sure to remove all the rice and potatoes from the vegetable so that they’re fresh and juicy. Once you’re done, you can shred the vegetables with a spatula to make them bright and fluffy again. This will allow you to make this salad into a meal so you don’t have to use the raw vegetables that you already have!
Egg noodles and cheese like chicken are extremely healthy and full of nutrients too. Eating egg noodles with chicken will limit your fat intake too since it’s a more natural non-fried version of the noodles. If you want your burrito to be lighter, try using whole grain pasta instead. Since whole grain pasta makes use of most of your normal protein, it’s a great option to start the new year.
The good news is that egg noodles are already broken down to make this side. This eliminates the possibility of them being rancid and possibly will help you preserve your salad.
Whether you get tired of it or not, you have to keep calling out the pies. These big, gooey pies are a truly simple, delicious dessert and we do have some tips to help keep your stomach full for a longer time than normal. Try to keep any kind of food around for the next couple of days, so that you can continue enjoying it while it’s still summer and warm.
