Simple salad for lunch

This time I am going to share a simple salad recipe for lunch. When I was looking for simple lunch recipe on Youtube–because I’m getting bored to eat such local cuisines, I stumbled upon on some of food vlogger channels who make simple salad for lunch. Before we step further to the recipe, I want to share my experience after I took this salad for a few consecutive days.

I have no idea but everytime the month period hit me, I have always got pain in my belly on the first day. But magically, I didn’t feel any pain at this time. I am not sure yet whether it is because I took raw vegetables. Besides that, I also took a bottle of cold-pressed juice from Re.Juve (not an endorsement) once in a week. My favourite is Green Glory (contains: spinach, celery stick, pineapple and orange) and Firey Beat (contains: beetroot, cucumber, apple, pineapple and ginger). I personally fallin’ love with the flavour, it is very healthy, fresh and the most important is it is sugar-free. I became a fan of Re.Juve products since then.

So, back to the salad recipe. I bought all the ingredients from Ranch Market at Epicentrum because I thought I couldn’t get baby spinach at the traditional market. On that day, I was looking for some products for my breakfast such as oatmeal, granola and yogurt and when I passed through the vegetable shelf I saw the lettuce were on-sale, ‘buy one get one free’, and in all of a sudden a bowl of salad appear in my mind.

Egg Mayonnaise Sandwich

In recent years, I have always concerned about food I consume. I no longer tempted by unhealthy food which contain high level of monosodium glutamate. Since I moved to my uncle’s house, I have got a little time in the morning to make breakfast because I have always woke up late when I was staying at kos–not a morning person though. Besides I am able to control the hygiene of the ingredients.

Since these past two years, I have always had a bowl of mixture of oatmeal, granola and Energen cereal for breakfast, but I am thinking of to make some variation like something tastier. Sometimes, I added yogurt and some fruit too along the mixture of oatmeal e.g banana, dragon fruit and strawberry.

I was searching for the simplest recipe on Youtube (another helpful platform), I stumbled upon on a youtube channel about how to make egg mayonnaise sandwich and implement it ever since. I’m proud of myself because I successfully didn’t make my stomach hurt. LOL.
