Nuttin’ But Salads N=1 Experiment: Week 12 Summary

Taco salad. Probably too much work to make on a frequent basis unless you use store-bought quacamole salad and pico de gallo.

Another week passes without personal E. coli Shiga toxin illness. Success! I read an article at USA Today saying that women seem to constitute about 70% of E coli food born illness cases.

Sunny’s Super Salad

I’m coming up on my four month anniversary for doing this salad diet. Not sure how long I’ll keep it up. What I miss most are cookies, pie, cake, candy, and sweet pastries. My wife’s doing the diet with me, so we’ll probably make a joint decision. I do think it’s a healthy way to eat.

Avocados have been affordable where we live.

My weight today is 163.8 lb (74.5 kg), a little higher than a couple weeks ago but I think it’ll be stable.

Not salad, so I didn’t eat the Shari’s Berries found in my employer’s office refrigerator.

I’ve had some transgressions. Hey, I’m only human.

No, I didn’t eat them all.

My go-to salad is what I call Sunny’s Super Salad: A mixed greens base with nuts, cheese, dried cranberries, mandarin orange wedges, topped with chicken or steak.
