Wedge Salad

Simple Wedge Salad with bacon and blue cheese that’s a delight to eat on it’s own or as a side dish …

Wedge Salad

My first encounter with Wedge Salad was when my good friend Brenice and I ate at Maple in Shangri-La Plaza (now closed). I found it so fancy and I was impressed that iceberg lettuce could be served in wedges in a salad. It was a Pwede pala yon? moment for me. It was really good too and changed my mind about iceberg lettuce in general.

I wouldn’t say I made it immediately, though. Although I’m really fond of salads, it is seldom that I make salad at home because I am the only one who eats it — except for say, this Taco Salad which peanutbutter loves and of course, dessert salads like this Mango Pandan Salad for Ykaie.

Year after year, I told myself that we should add more greens and veggies into our diet. I think I’ve achieved that but I feel like we should be eating more. Especially now that I’ve experienced my blood pressure rising, once last Dec 23 and a second time this Feb 4. I know I’ve been yoyo dieting. It’s really hard for me to stick to a certain diet because I love to eat and I love food. I haven’t quite gotten around how to make a lifestyle change. I’ve tried and tried and failed.

Wedge Salad

I’m trying again this time. It’s been five days that I was able to eat a bit healthy. You know, less carbs and sweets, more veggies and fruits. I’m also trying to eat more fish and I’ve done some work outs.

I’ve a bit of a scare because of the high blood pressure so I should be able to figure this out.

Anyway, along with eating healthy, one of my goals his year to share what I’ve been up to on a daily basis if I can. I know I haven’t been posting as much. I’ve been quite uninspired lately — I don’t know why. Hoping to inspire myself, I started reading back on my old posts. I think it kinda worked because here I am…sharing with you this Wedge Salad. It’s a salad that is so easy to make and so delicious you just have to make it.

Here’s to healthier eating, regular blog updates, and inspiring moments…
