Protein salads

There’s no protein in lettuce……..I think. It contains lots of water. And a calming substance. I heard that long ago but I don’t know if I get calmer from salads. The protein in this salad comes from eggs and bacon. Eggs contain protein (we all know that) and are wonderful in salads.

Usually eggs in salads are boiled but I fried mine. I fried the bacon first and then the egg in the bacon fat. Very healthy! Unhealthy but tasty. These are my favorite proteins to add to salads. I exercise often and have to eat balanced. Protein is important because it both fills you up and builds muscles.

The salad also contained lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, olives and red onions. I made a dressing from olive oil and applecider vinegar. Tasty!
