The Ghetto Salad

The ghetto salad is a meal only a raw foodist could love, or at least only someone who has eliminated all salt, spices, and other taste stimulants from their diet.

It is simple, tasty, and has but one ingredient: lettuce.

That's right, just lettuce or another leafy green. No tomatoes, no cucumbers, no dressing.

Now, you're talking to to a guy who loves a nice complex but healthy salad. I even wrote an ebook on healthy low fat salad dressings that taste great.

But when you're eating a good diet, after awhile your taste buds have changed so much that you can appreciate the subtle yet pleasant flavors found in many greens. So it's nice sometimes to be able to meet your body's needs with simple, unprepared foods and actually enjoy it.

I've been traveling through Asia and am often without a kitchen, good knives, and a blender, all of which make complex salads and dressings easier to prepare. Frequently, I find myself in an airport on on a bus with nothing but the food I can buy.

Here in Thailand, The Royal Project label is all organic, and generally quite fresh. The Royal Project even sell lettuce, tomatoes, and other vegetables at the Chiang Mai airport in the large quantities raw foodists appreciate, which I was delighted to discover.

Of course, you can certainly find nasty, tasteless lettuce. If it's not fresh and it's been sprayed with chemical fertilizers and pesticides, the ghetto salad might be disgusting.

I created this video because I like to challenge people's perceptions of what normal eating habits look like. To see some, "normal," raw food meals of fruit, which provide the majority of calories, check out the video section.
