I know when my Iron level is low because I begin to crave spinach, mushrooms, onions and oatmeal...not all combined, mind you.
And lately, I can't seem to get enough spinach salad with Noni's vinaigrette. It's so good...and so simple. Fresh spinach, tomato, red onion, vinegar and olive oil, salt, pepper, granulated garlic. Toss a handful of spinach into a bowl, add very thinly sliced red onion, chopped tomato (fresh from the garden preferably...I bought a tomato the other day and it was so awful), a swish of oil and a swish of vinegar, some salt, pepper and garlic...toss, and eat! Not sure what I'm going to do when the summer tomatoes are gone and I am forced to buy them from the store because I'm convinced that the ripe, juicy tomato is what's really making this salad special. That, and lots of vinegar. Mm mm...
I've been having this salad with lunch...as a snack after work...with dinner...once I even had it as an evening snack.
Isn't it so amazing that our bodies tell us what we need? I'm glad that I'm learning to pay attention.
