Hi Everyone!

So I landed in Australia all safe and sound, and now I’m busy getting settling in. I’m also battling some serious jet lag!

Hopefully I’ll get some cool Aussie-backgrounded videos up for you soon, but in the meantime, here is one I recorded before I left home. It’s about a darn good salad that I’ve been eating as a meal…. I love it. It’s delicious and filling – and healthy, of course!

Watch the video and find out how to make the best gosh darn salad you ever had!


The recipe ingredients:

  • Big bowl of salad greens
  • A bunch of cherry tomatoes (or one regular medium tomato)
  • 1/2 or 1/4 of a red, yellow, or orange bell pepper
  • Handful of sprouts (alfalfa or whatever)
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped purple onion
  • Half an avocado
  • The kernels of one corn cob (completely optional)
  • 2 or 3 big spoonfuls of hummus
  • The juice of one lemon wedge
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • a squirt or tablespoon of organic prepared mustard (I forgot this in the salad in the video, but I usually have this in the dressing)
  • A few shakes of sea salt
  • A few shakes of pepper
  • Handful of pumpkin seeds

Throw all of this in a bowl, mix it up, and enjoy!

By the way, most of the ingredients are completely optional, so don’t feel like you need everything on here to make a good salad. You can also add other things – bits of meat are good too if you eat it. Try throwing a bit of chicken on there. Be creative ๐Ÿ™‚
